- The paper by Magnus Haw and Paul Bellan MHD collimation mechanism in arched flux ropes characterized using volumetric, time‐dependent B‐vector measurements is an “Editor’s Highlight” in Geophysical Research Letters.
- Young Dae Yoon gave an invited talk at the 2017 American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics annual meeting on a new way of explaining fast magnetic reconnection. The talk is A generalized two-fluid picture of non-driven collisionless reconnection and its relation to whistler waves
- Paul Bellan gave a tutorial talk at the 2017 American Physical Society Division of Plasma Physics annual meeting on Experiments and models of MHD jets and their relevance to astrophysics and solar physics.
- Measurements made by the MMS spacecraft reported by Gershman et al. in the paper Wave-particle energy exchange directly observed in a kinetic Alfvén-branch wave in Nature Communications validate the method proposed by Paul Bellan in the paper Revised Single-Spacecraft Method for Determining Wavevector k and Resolving Space-time Ambiguity. This method shows how a single spacecraft can measure the wavelength and direction of a low-frequency plasma wave so four spacecraft are not needed as was previously presumed.
