Main Article Content
The relative position of the VLF/ELF emission region with respect to the plasmapause is of essential importance in studying their generation and propagation mechanism. On occasions when whistler data are not available, providing extensively the experimental determination of the plasmapause, we are obliged to rely on the theoretical model calculation or, alternatively, on the empirical formulas. The present paper deals with the evaluation of the effectiveness of the use of a theoretical model calculation in estimating the plasmapause location with reference to its comparison with in-situ electron density measurements and empirical formulas, during a specific geomagnetic storm. It is concluded that the temporal evolution with the present theoretical calculation, under a more acceptable convection electric field model, would yield a sufficiently reliable value for the plasmapause configuration rather than the empirical formulas. It can be used in the study of wave-particle interactions when whistler data are not available and also in the study of the erosion of the plasmasphere itself.
Authors who publish with this journal as of Vol. 63 agree to the following terms:
a. Authors share the copyright with this journal in equal parts (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author), and grant the journal right of first publication, with the work after publication simultaneously licensed under Creative Commons Attribution License CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 that allows others to share the work with an acknowledgment of the work's authorship and initial publication in this journal.
b. Authors may enter into separate, additional contractual arrangements for the non-exclusive distribution of the journal's published version of the work (e.g., post it to an institutional repository or publish it in a book), with an acknowledgment of its initial publication in this journal, and a reference to this copyright notice.
c. Authors are permitted and encouraged to post their work online (e.g., in institutional repositories or on their website) during the submission process, as this can lead to productive exchanges as well as earlier and greater citation of published work and better sales of the copyright.
This journal is one of a handful of scholarly journals that publish original scientific works under CC BY-NC-ND 4.0 - the only Creative Commons license affording absolute worldwide protection of authors' intellectual property.
Journal of Geophysics is published under the scholar-publishers model, meaning authors do not surrender their copyright to us. Instead, and unlike corporate publishers like Elsevier or Springer Nature which resell the copyright to third-parties for up to $80,000 (per paper, per transaction!), the Journal of Geophysics authors share the copyright equally with this journal.
Therefore all the proceeds from reselling the copyright to third parties are shared to equal parts as well (50% to the journal, 50% to the lead author). Under the Berne Convention, this protection is an inheritable right which lasts for as long as the rightsholder lives + 50 years.
By submitting to this journal, the lead author on behalf of all co-authors grants permission to this journal to represent all co-authors in negotiating copyright sales and collecting of proceeds. The lead author should negotiate with his/her co-authors the modalities of distributing the lead author's portion of the proceeds. Usually, this is per pre-agreed percentage of each co-author's contribution to creating the copyrighted work. (more...)
