Effect of anomalous electron heating on the transpolar potential in the LFM global MHD model

Abstract

[1] The tendency of global MHD models to overestimate the transpolar potential in simulations of strong geomagnetic storms and evidence of an adverse feedback of the ionospheric conductance on the potential suggest that these models lack important physics leading to the conductance enhancement. Farley-Buneman instability in the auroral ionosphere provides… (More)
