    • Characteristics of the flank magnetopause: Cluster observations 

      Haaland, Stein; Reistad, Jone Peter; Tenfjord, Paul; Gjerloev, Jesper W.; Maes, Lukas; deKeyser, Johan; Maggiolo, Romain; Anekallu, Chrandrasehkar; Dorville, Nicolas (WileyAmerican Geophysical Union, 2014-11)
      The magnetopause is a current sheet forming the boundary between the geomagnetic field on one side and the shocked solar wind on the other side. This paper discusses properties of the low-latitude dawn and dusk flanks of ...

    • The interaction between transpolar arcs and cusp spots 

      Fear, Robert C.; Milan, Steve; Carter, Jenny A.; Maggiolo, Romain (AGU Publications, 2015-11-25)
      Transpolar arcs and cusp spots are both auroral phenomena which occur when the interplanetary magnetic field is northward. Transpolar arcs are associated with magnetic reconnection in the magnetotail, which closes magnetic ...

    • Solar illumination control of ionospheric outflow above polar cap arcs 

      Maes, Lukas; Maggiolo, Romain; De Keyser, Johan; Dandouras, Iannis; Fear, Robert C.; Fontaine, Dominique; Haaland, Stein (AGU Publications, 2015-03-12)
      We measure the flux density, composition, and energy of outflowing ions above the polar cap, accelerated by quasi-static electric fields parallel to the magnetic field and associated with polar cap arcs, using Cluster. ...
