Fast magnetic field-line merging at the magnetospheric bow and in the tail are examined to determine their implications in regard to the concept of bulk motion of the magnetosphere (convection) and the associated electric field. Upper atmosphere geophysical measurements are surveyed to determine to what extent the available data support this concept. The dawn-dusk asymmetry in energetic particle fluxes, the movement of auroral ionization, ionospheric currents, and the location of the whistler… Expand
