Scaling laws for geomagnetic tail current sheet acceleration
Abstract
Solutions of the equation describing proton acceleration in the electric field of the Earth's geomagnetic tail often require lengthy numerical calculations and parametric exploration which can be difficult. Here, considerations of a scaling nature are presented, and it is shown that these considerations may be used to extend, correlate, organize, and verify groups of solutions with regard to parametric variation.
