Cold ion heating in Earth’s magnetosphere

This white paper discusses the importance of improved cold ion measurements, the measurement requirements for future missions, and the role of wave-particle interactions in cold plasma heating. It highlights the need for better physics-based models in combination with machine learning to augment our understanding of coupling between different plasma populations in Earth’s magnetosphere.
