To test the current-generation model of subauroral polarization stream (SAPS), we have investigated the rela- tive positions of field-aligned currents (FACs) with respect to SAPS in a statistical way by using CHAMP (CHAlleng- ing Minisatellite Payload) and DMSP (Defense Meteorologi- cal Satellite Program) satellite observations as well as model simulations. Comparative studies have been performed for consecutive CHAMP observations in different magnetic lo- cal time (MLT) sectors with respect to… CONTINUE READING
