Theory of Wave Propagation Within the Magnetosphere
Electromagnetic and hydromagnetic waves can be excited within the magnetosphere either by solar wind—magnetospheric interaction or by internal instabilities. Electromagnetic pulses generated by lightning events can propagate through the magnetosphere along the geomagnetic field lines and can be observed on the ground and within the magnetosphere. In the next two chapters, we present a short introduction into the theory of wave propagation through a magnetoactive plasma, followed by a brief discussion of observed wave phenomena in the magnetosphere.
