This chapter provides an overview of these aspects of ULF wave properties and their relationship to particle energization in the magnetosphere. The electric fields of ULF plasma waves may energize charged particles in the magnetosphere, but many details of these interactions are unclear. Much of the present understanding of ULF wave properties has come from ground magnetometer arrays and associated data analysis techniques. In particular, the resonant properties of ULF waves may be used to remote sense the magnetospheric cold plasma reservoir. Electric field magnitudes in the equatorial plane may be estimated by tracing along the geomagnetic field to the ground where the ULF wave magnetic field is measured. However, the wide range of wave temporal and spatial scale sizes is a persistent challenge. Smaller spatial scale size waves involved in resonant interactions with particles are more readily seen in the ionosphere with HF radars and Doppler sounders.

Keywords:   radial particle transport, magnetometer array, remote sensing electric field, resonant interaction, ULF wave indices
