Satellite studies of magnetospheric substorms are necessarily statistical since there are few properly instrumented satellites in space at any one time. To carry out these studies, one selects an ensemble of similar substorms, determines an origin for substorm time, and performs an ensemble average to eliminate noise. Similarity between different substorms can be determined from contour maps of midlatitude magnetic perturbations as a function of longitude and universal time. The origin of… CONTINUE READING
