Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Electron
  • Plasma
  • Astronomy

James L. Burch spends much of his time researching Plasma, Geophysics, Magnetosphere, Astrophysics and Electron. He interconnects Spacecraft, Comet, Astronomy, Computational physics and Saturn in the investigation of issues within Plasma. James L. Burch combines subjects such as Magnetopause, Convection, Field line, Magnetic reconnection and Polar with his study of Geophysics.

His studies in Magnetosphere integrate themes in fields like Solar wind, Energetic neutral atom and Ionosphere. James L. Burch has included themes like Interplanetary magnetic field and Atmospheric sciences, Noon in his Astrophysics study. His research in Electron intersects with topics in Event and Atomic physics.

His most cited work include:

  • Magnetospheric Multiscale Overview and Science Objectives (702 citations)
  • Fast Plasma Investigation for Magnetospheric Multiscale (569 citations)
  • IMF By-dependent plasma flow and Birkeland currents in the dayside magnetosphere: 2. A global model for northward and southward IMF (477 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His scientific interests lie mostly in Computational physics, Magnetic reconnection, Magnetosphere, Electron and Plasma. His research in Computational physics focuses on subjects like Turbulence, which are connected to Kinetic energy. Within one scientific family, he focuses on topics pertaining to Magnetopause under Magnetic reconnection, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Geophysics and Interplanetary magnetic field.

The Magnetosphere study combines topics in areas such as Astrophysics and Solar wind. His Electron research incorporates themes from Scale, Condensed matter physics and Atomic physics. He combines subjects such as Astronomy and Ionosphere with his study of Plasma.
