The author examines the motion of an isolated flux tube connecting the interplanetary and terrestrial magnetic field that has been created by reconnection at the dayside magnetopause. Such tubes should create a distinct localized flow pattern at their feet in the ionosphere. Observational effects are discussed. It is argued that the delay time of the order of a minute or more corresponding to the time for propagation of information from the reconnection site to the ionosphere is important and… CONTINUE READING
