[1] The present study focuses on a modeling of the seasonal and diurnal effects on the dynamics of the coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere system under different solar illumination conditions, to try to reproduce some of the observations concerning the region 2 (R2) field-aligned currents (FAC). This is performed by introducing in the Ionosphere Magnetosphere Model (IMM) the Earth’s rotation axis tilt, the dipole axis tilt and an eccentric dipole. The simulated patterns of the R2 FAC agree rather… CONTINUE READING
