Abstract : The research was focused into three related areas. These were: A) An examination of stochastic electron acceleration mechanisms in the ionosphere and the resulting dynamics of magnetospheric (i.e., Radiation Belt) particles and waves; B) A study of nonadiabatic particle orbits and the electrodynamic structure of the coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere auroral arc system; C) An experimental investigation of the wake signatures created by a solid body immersed in a flowing plasma.
