Research by Dr. Jia and Professor Kivelson highlighted in AGU research spotlight

The Journal of Geophysical Research published the work of Assistant Research Scientist Dr. Xianzhe Jia and Professor Margaret Kivelson on the mysterious electromagnetic periodicities of Saturn’s magnetosphere.

Jia and Kivelson’s paper, “Driving Saturn's magnetospheric periodicities from the upper atmosphere/ionosphere: Magnetotail response to dual sources,” has been selected as an AGU Research Spotlight. The highlight was published online and will be featured in the AGU newspaper, Eos.

These achievements are preceded by the publication of the group’s first paper by Jia, Kivelson and Professor Tamas Gombosi, “Driving Saturn's magnetospheric periodicities from the upper atmosphere/ionosphere,” in the April issue of the Journal of Geophysical Research. The model has been highlighted as a novel result in the journal Nature Physics.
