When the magnetic field piles up against the dayside magnetopause, plasma depletion layer (PDL) is formed with decreasing plasma density and increasing magnetic field in front of the magnetopause boundary layer. Most of the PDL events were observed when the Interplanetary Magnetic Field (IMF) direction is northward. In this study, we examined a… CONTINUE READING
