Electromagnetic Waves with Frequencies Near the Local Proton Gryofrequency: ISEF-3 1 AU ObservationsLow Frequency electromagnetic waves with periods near the local proton gyrofrequency have been detected near 1 AU by the magnetometer onboard ISEE-3. For these 1 AU waves two physical processes are possible: solar wind pickup of nuetral (interstellar?) particles and generation by relativistic electron beams propagating from the Sun.
