dc.description.abstract The overall multi-layer structure of the magnetic field observed by Ulysses across a broad solar wind tangential discontinuity can be reproduced fairly well by means of a kinetic model. Such a simulation provides complementary information about the velocity distribution functions, which are not always known due to the low time resolution inherent in plasma measurements. The success of such a simulation proves that our kinetic model can be used as a realistic basis for further studies of the structure and stability of tangential discontinuities. en_US
