Multi-Point Spacecraft Observatory Analysis Techniques
Series: Program in Applied Mathematics Brown Bag Seminar
Location: Hybrid: Math 402/Online
Presenter: Teddy Broeren, Program in Applied Mathematics, University of Arizona

The future NASA mission HelioSwarm will launch a configuration of nine co-orbiting spacecraft whose goal is to study basic plasma processes which are present in near-Earth plasmas. Each of these spacecraft will have a magnetometer instrument which makes in-situ measurements of magnetic fields. As magnetic fields play a critical role in the dynamics of plasmas, inferring magnetic field structure across the HelioSwarm observatory is a necessary step towards characterizing fundamental plasma processes. We outline two techniques which provide distinct characterizations of the magnetic field structure.
