Geophysical Research Letters, 24(8), doi: /97GL This Article is brought to you for free and open access by the Physics and Astronomy Department at Digital Commons @ Trinity. Ground signatures indicative of substorm activity were also observed by the THEMIS ground-based observatories during this interval. Prior to the substorm, none of the solar-wind monitoring missions (Geotail, OMNI, ACE) observed a significant southward Bz which could have initiated the Miles Thomas Bengtson. Magnetospheric substorms represent a global interaction between the solar wind, the magetosphere, and the ionosphere.

Observations of the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling Abstract In this thesis, the solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling is studied observationally, with the main focus on the ionospheric currents in the auroral region.
