Solar Wind & Bow Shock
Further upstream of the bow shock, we need to learn more about electromagnetic waves in the solar wind, in particular about their transmission through the bow shock and the magnetosheath. Cluster II, which carries five instruments to measure the characteristics of electromagnetic instruments in various frequency domains - STAFF, EFW, WHISPER, WBD and DWP - would be ideally located for this study with, for instance, two spacecraft downstream and two upstream of the bow shock.
