Abstract:

A recent conjecture that the observed whistler cutoff arises from thermal broadening of the cyclotron resonance was used to evaluate electron temperatures. In the original work very crude data were analyzed with a modified dispersion relation based on the collisionless Boltzmann equation. This thermal analyses wasAPPLIED TO NEW WHISTLER DATA OF Pope, using each of his assumed density variations and both one and two hop interpretations of the data. Author
