|Abstract||Russell and Elphic (1979) suggested the possibility that flux transfer events (FTEs) generate long-period micropulsations int he outer, dayside magnetosphere. The authors examine the reasons for this hypothesis and present results of two pulsation surveys designed to test it. In the first survey, observations of micropulsations by GOES 2 are compared with ISEE 3 and IMP observations of interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) direction; since FTEs are highly correlated with southward IMF, they looked for a similar correlation between pulsations and southward IMF. In the second survey a catalogue of ISEE 1 and 2 magnetopause crossings is compared with magnetometer readings from GOES 2 and 3 to determine whether Pc 4 and Pc 5 pulsations are more likely to occur after FTEs have taken place. The results indicate that there is a correlation between FTEs and transversely polarized Pc 4 pulsations with periods between 60 and 120 s but not between FTEs and Pc pulsations with periods greater than 120 s. This suggests that the generating (or driving) frequency associated with FTEs lies between 60 and 120 s.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
