A model of the near magnetosphere with a dawn-dusk asymmetry 1. Mathematical structure
[1] A new empirical magnetic field model has been developed, representing the variable configuration of the inner and near magnetosphere for different interplanetary conditions and the groundExpand

Storm‐time distortion of the inner magnetosphere: How severe can it get?
[1] First results are presented of an effort to model the storm-time distortion of the magnetic field in the inner magnetosphere using space magnetometer data. Strong geomagnetic storms areExpand

Tail plasma sheet models derived from Geotail particle data
[1] Simple analytical models have been derived for the first time, describing the 2-D distribution (along and across the Earth's magnetotail) of the central plasma sheet (CPS) ion temperature,Expand

Disturbances in Mercury's magnetosphere: Are the Mariner 10 “substorms” simply driven?
In addition to providing the first in situ evidence of a magnetosphere at Mercury, the first flyby by Mariner 10 inspired reports of Earth-like substorms. While the small scales at Mercury shouldExpand

Abstract A previously proposed model (Tsyganenko and Usmanov, 1982, Planet. Space Sci . 30 , 985) is further developed, using IMP -A, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J and HEOS -1, -2 spacecraft measurementsExpand

Modeling of twisted/warped magnetospheric configurations using the general deformation method
A new method is developed for modeling the effects of the planetary dipole tilt and of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) related twisting of the cross-tail current sheet. The method extends theExpand

Magnetospheric configurations from a high-resolution data-based magnetic field model
[1] We present first results of the magnetospheric magnetic field modeling, based on large sets of spacecraft data and a high-resolution expansion for the field of equatorial currents. In thisExpand

Observations and model predictions of substorm auroral asymmetries in the conjugate hemispheres
[1] Based on imaging data from the Polar VIS Earth camera and the IMAGE-FUV instruments we have documented how the IMF orientation and the dipole tilt angle act as the main and the secondaryExpand

An empirical model of the substorm current wedge
A wedge-shaped current linking the nightside ionosphere and the plasma sheet is believed to be the principal cause of a major reconfiguration of the magnetospheric field on the nightside, observed atExpand

Storm time evolution of the outer radiation belt: Transport and losses
[1] During geomagnetic storms the magnetic field of the inner magnetosphere exhibits large-scale variations over timescales from minutes to days. Being mainly controlled by the magnetic field theExpand
