Ionosphere-Magnetosphere Coupling

  • Rolf Boström
Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Library book series (ASSL, volume 44)

Abstract

A review is given of some aspects of the electric coupling between the ionosphere and magnetosphere. Topics discussed are the mapping of time-dependent electric fields, the effects of Birkeland currents on the magnetospheric plasma convection, the relation of Birkeland currents to ionospheric electric field structures such as field reversals, secondary Birkeland currents of ionospheric origin and triggering of auroral particle precipitation, double-layers causing voltage drops along the magnetic field lines, and an equivalent electric circuit for the substorm currents in the coupled ionosphere-magnetosphere system.
