AbstractAssuming that the observed Alfven waves in the solar wind are the superposition of inward-and outward-propagating Alfven waves, we obtain an analytical relation from which the observed Walen slope R-W can give a theoretical estimate of the amplitude ratio R-vA of inward to outward waves. From the Wind data at 1 AU, we select 37 Alfven wave events classified observationally as three kinds: dominant outward Alfven waves with vertical bar R-W vertical bar >= 0.75 (Class A), dominant outward Alfven waves with vertical bar R-W vertical bar < 0.75 (Class B), and dominant inward Alfven waves with vertical bar R-W vertical bar < 0.75 (Class C). For Class A events the theoretical predictions of R-vA based on R-W deviate from the wave amplitude observations, but for Class B and C events the theoretical predictions agree well with related observations, being a direct observational evidence that the superposition of inward and outward Alfven waves can cause the subunity of R-W. A simple simulation is made with a white Gaussian noise to demonstrate that a small noise could reproduce the observed properties of all three kinds of events cause the measured parameters of waves with vertical bar R-W vertical bar >= 0.75 in Class A to deviate significantly from the true values more than waves with vertical bar R-W vertical bar < 0.75. The simulation implies that the observational results based on wave amplitudes seem. reliable only for waves with vertical bar R-W vertical bar < 0.75. The R-vA ratios calculated from the analytical relation based on R-W are closer to true values than those obtained from wave amplitude observations.
