Brief Communication: Weibel, Firehose and Mirror mode relations

Treumann, R. A., and W. Baumjohann (2014), Brief Communication: Weibel, Firehose and Mirror mode relations, Nonlin. Processes in Geophys., 21, 143-148, doi:10.5194/npg-21-1-2014, 7 pages, no figures, Open Access.

Abstract
Excitation of Weibel-like magnetic fields in an initially non-magnetized though anisotropic plasma may trigger other low-frequency instabilities fed by pressure anisotropy. It is shown that under Weibel-like stable conditions the Weibel-like thermal fluctuation magnetic field allows for restricted Firehose-mode growth. In addition, low-frequency Whistlers can also propagate in the plasma under certain conditions. When the Weibel-like mode becomes unstable, Firehose instability ceases but Mirror modes take over. This will cause bubble structure in the Weibel-like field in addition to filamentation.
