Two periods during which the convection boundary was in the Scandinavian Twin Auroral Radar Experiment field of view a few hours before and after magnetic noon are analyzed. We find that sporadic and spatially isolated flow across the convection boundary occurs on time scales of a few minutes and in regions which in the ionosphere range in size from 50 km to 300 km. We suggest that the antisunward flow immediately north of the convection boundary maps into the low-latitude boundary layer. Our… CONTINUE READING
