Simulation of the solar wind interaction with the magnetosphere and its application to real-time calculation

Abstract

Our research activity in computer simulations of the solar wind interaction with the magnetosphere is reviewed. First, results of global MHD simulation of the Earth's magnetosphere are shown. They provided us a new insight into the field-aligned current system, the structure of the magnetospheric convention, and the substorm mechanism. Then, we applied the… (More)
