Chapter
Full-text available
Various ESA projects and several proposals to first Swarm DISC Call for Ideas (May 2016) suggested possible evolution for the current Swarm Level 2 FAC products, and the implementation of quality flags for the FAC products. The Field-Aligned Currents—Methodology Inter-Comparison Exercise (FAC-MICE) consisted in comparison of the various methods to...

On 25 August 2018, the China Seismo‐Electromagnetic Satellite (CSES) encountered the first intense geomagnetic storm event since its launch on 2 February 2018. The main purpose of this work is to check in‐flight performance of the assembled payloads onboard CSES, as well as to investigate the ionosphere perturbations induced by this geomagnetic sto...
Chapter
Full-text available
In this chapter the application of the curlometer technique to various regions of the inner magnetosphere and upper ionosphere and for special circumstances of sampling is described. The basic technique is first outlined, together with the caveats of use, covering: the four-spacecraft technique, its quality factor and limitations; the lessons learn...
Article
Full-text available
We investigate the statistical, dual-spacecraft correlations of field-aligned current (FAC) signatures between two Swarm spacecraft. For the first time, we infer the orientations of the current sheets of FACs by directly using the maximum correlations obtained from sliding data segments. The current sheet orientations are shown to broadly follow th...
Article
For the first time, the current density distribution in the inner equatorial magnetosphere ranging from 4 to 12 RE (RE is the Earth radius, 6371km) has been obtained by using Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS) (P3, P4, and P5) three point magnetic measurements. This study mainly focuses on the storm events...
Article
During the first several months of the three-spacecraft Swarm mission all three spacecraft came repeatedly into close alignment, providing an ideal opportunity for validating the proposed dual spacecraft method for estimating current density from the Swarm magnetic field data. Two of the Swarm spacecraft regularly fly side-by-side in closely simila...
Article
Many previous studies have demonstrated that the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) can control the magnetospheric dynamics. Immediate magnetospheric responses to the external IMF has been assumed for a long time. The specific processes by which IMF penetrates into magnetosphere, however, is actually unclear. Solving this issue will help to accura...
Article
Unambiguous knowledge of magnetic field structure and the electric current distribution is critical for understanding the origin, evolution and related dynamic properties of magnetic flux ropes (MFRs). In this paper, a survey of 13 MFRs in the Earth's magnetotail are conducted by Cluster multi-point analysis, so that their force-free feature, i.e.,...
Conference Paper
The imminent launch of the 3 Swarm spacecraft into low, polar Earth orbits; the planned coordination of Swarm with the 4 Cluster spacecraft through joint operations, and the further possible coordination with the recently launched 2 spacecraft RBSP mission, provides an unprecedented, distributed space dataset of 'clustered' multi-point measurements...
Article
Full-text available
Magnetic disturbances caused by the Earth's ring current, particularly during storm time activity, have a dominant effect on the geomagnetic field. Strong currents and large kinetic and magnetic energies can change considerably local field geometry, and depress the ground geomagnetic field. The multi-spacecraft magnetic measurements of Cluster allo...
Article
Full-text available
The fine magnetic field structure of two successive plasmoids previously reported is investigated by magnetic rotation analysis using four Cluster satellite data. Between these two plasmoids, opposite trends of curvature radius (Rc) variations of the magnetic field lines from the boundary to the inner part are found. The different variations of Rc...
