Frederick Wilder – Research Projects
Using data from the NASA Magnetospheric Multiscale (MMS) mission to explore the physics of magnetic reconnection in the earth’s magnetosphere.
Using a constellation of CubeSats to map irregularities and turbulence in the earth’s ionosphere and determine their effects on global navigation systems.
Supporting the Center for the Unified Studies of Interemispheric Asymmetries (CUSIA) at UT Arlington to study how asymmetries between the magnetic fields in the northern and southern polar regions impact the magnetosphere and ionosphere.
Using data from MMS and simulations to study “ocean like” surfer waves at the boundary of Earth’s magnetosphere, and the many ways these waves couple the magnetosphere with the solar wind.
