The present study statistically examines the dependence of the intensities of dayside (MLT=8-12 h) large-scale field-aligned currents (FACs) on the ionospheric conductance using the summary data of DMSP-F7 constructed by the procedure of Higuchi and Ohtani (2000). We have found that, in the dayside region, R1 and R0 have a higher correlation between ionospheric conductivity and FAC intensity than R2, suggesting that R0 and R1 are driven by a more voltage-like source than R2. This result is… CONTINUE READING
