Title: Solar Wind Modification in the Earth Foreshock Author: Jaroslav Urbář Department: Department of Surface and Plasma Science Supervisor: Prof. Zdeněk Němeček, Department of Surface and Plasma Science Abstract: The thesis presents statistical studies of the solar wind deceleration and deflection in the foreshock and its potential causes. The multi-point observa- tions from the THEMIS mission in the foreshock are compared with a Wind solar wind monitor with motivation to estimate different factors influencing evolution of solar wind speed and its deflection. We have found a systematic deceleration of the solar wind mainly due to its proton component with a decreasing distance to the bow shock that is controlled by the compressibility and the level of magnetic field fluctuations in the ULF wave range associated with the flux of reflected and accelerated particles. We can conclude that the reflected particles excite waves of large amplitudes that decelerate the solar wind protons throughout the foreshock as well as in front of the Moon. Keywords: Earth foreshock; reflected protons; solar wind proton velocity recon- struction; deceleration; ULF waves 1
Total Electron Content Measurements by Single-Frequency GPS Receiver
Rejfek, Luboš ; Pitaš, K. ; Urbář, Jaroslav ; Chmelař, P.
In this paper is described the measurement of the Total Electron Content by the single-frequency GPS receiver. Disadvantage of this method is that it cannot be used for realtime processing. The advantages of the proposed method are that the device is cheaper than dual-frequency GPS receiver and it can reinterpret older valuable measurements by such singlefrequency receivers. The algorithm was tested with the dualfrequency receiver. Signal from selected frequency (f1, or f2) was processed by presented algorithm and results were compared with standard processing of the signals, which is used for the dual-frequency receivers. Results are promising.
