5.10.4 Identify and characterise the various forms of free energy in the particle distribution functions. Analyse their formation and relaxation processes at sub-second resolution. Characterise and measure the degree of reversibility and irreversibility in these processes and generalise to the understanding of the dynamic behaviour of weakly collisional media.
- SWA, SWA Normal Mode, SWA Burst Mode (Scheduled), good radial spread of short duration bursts over the mission, other instruments: MAG, RPW, normal and burst.
- Long-term observations.
- Radial dependence.
