- From presently available observations it can be inferred that the Alfvenic turbulence measured in the solar wind, predominantly on trailing edges of high speed streams, is a mixture of modes with two different polarizations, namely, Alfvenic modes and modes which are the incompressible limit of slow magnetosonic waves. Using Helios 2 magnetic data and a variance analysis, parallel (to the mean field) and perpendicular components of the fluctuations are separated and the possible correlation between such components is studied. Correlations between eigenvalues of the variance matrix are also investigated and discussed.
