[1] A multipoint analysis of conjugate magnetospheric and ionospheric flow vortices during the formation of the substorm current wedge (SCW) on 19 February 2008 is presented. During the substorm, four Time History of Events and Macroscale Interactions during Substorms (THEMIS) spacecraft were located close to the neutral sheet in the premidnight region between 9 and 12 RE geocentric distance, of which three closely (∼1–2 RE) clustered at ∼23 MLT and one was farther west at ∼21 MLT. The closely… CONTINUE READING
