Rapid enhancements of energetic ions during a substorm are one of the unsolved issues in the inner magnetospheric research (<7 Re). Previously, two distinct processes have been suggested to explain the enhancements. The first one is transport from the near-earth plasma sheet, and the other one is local acceleration. To test the both process, we performed test particle simulation under the electric and magnetic fields that are self-consistently obtained by the global MHD simulation developed by… CONTINUE READING
