[1] In this paper we report on field-aligned currents inferred from high-precision three-component geomagnetic field observations made on board the Danish satellite Ørsted over polar regions. Because of a slow drift in local time of the satellite orbit through the ‘‘noon-midnight’’ sector, we were able to study the seasonal dependence of the dynamic properties of the dayside and nightside field-aligned current systems over the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. We find an average over-the-pole… CONTINUE READING
