Abstract. Based on AMPTE-IRM and Equator-S observations in the magnetosheath near the dayside magnetopause, we provide observational support for a recent theory by Noreen et al. (2017) of the contribution of the electron mirror instability to the evolution of mirror modes in the high-temperature anisotropic collisionless plasma of the magnetosheath.
