Executive Summary :

In this proposed project, investigators hunt the in-situ existence of Alfvén waves/ fluctuations inside turbulent sheath and/or ordered magnetic structure of ICME using Wind and ACE spacecraft data. The main goal of the study is to unravel their origin and study their propagation and dissipation mode during different magnetized plasma region.
