Abstract

Hiss is the name given to the collection of incoherent whistler-mode waves that populate the near-Earth region in and around the plasmasphere, a cold plasma torus about Earth. Hiss waves scatter electrons in pitch angle over a broad energy range, often causing them to be lost from the inner magnetosphere and deposited into the upper atmosphere. The persistent electron scattering and loss driven by hiss waves is important to the dynamics of the inner magnetosphere and radiation belts. These waves determine the shape of the Earthward edge of the radiation belts and are largely responsible for the formation of the gap between electron radiation belts (the slot region).
