[1] Recently, a revised auroral substorm onset sequence has been proposed, in which onset is preceded by a poleward boundary intensification (PBI) and subsequent equatorward propagation of N-S-aligned auroral features to breakup arc latitudes. We reanalyzed 20 randomly selected samples of the Nishimura et al. (2010) 251-event database and show in greater detail to what degree the observed features in this subset of events are consistent with the proposed scenario. To assess the sensitivity of… CONTINUE READING
