[1] We calculated the electric current density in the diamagnetic cavity boundary layer (DCBL) using magnetic field data obtained during the Giotto mission to comet Halley. This current possesses both the component perpendicular to the local magnetic field and the parallel component. The perpendicular current is responsible for the screening of the diamagnetic cavity boundary from the field in the magnetic barrier. This current is supported by the electric field tangential to the boundary. The… Expand
