We have constructed a mathematical model of the magnetosphere in which a large-scale uniform electric field, representing plasma flow from the tail, is superimposed on the geomagnetic field. In addition, the model includes a corotation electric field and an electric field resulting from the conductivity of the plasmasphere. Drift paths of charged particles with various energies are traced out in the equatorial plane, assuming that these particles may enter the magnetosphere through the tail. It… Expand
