Abstract

The statistical properties of the magnitude of the magnetic field in magneto-hydrodynamic (MHD) flows, were discussed. Statistical properties of the magnitude in the internal range are expected to be more universal. The properties were analyzed from the data obtained from Advanced Composition Explorer (ACE) satellite magnetometers. The results obtained indicated that the statistical properties of the magnitude of the magnetic field in the turbulent electrically conducting media resemble, in the internal range, those of passive scalars in fully developed three-dimensional fluid turbulence.
