Birkeland currents play a fundamental role in conveying stress and electric field in the coupled solar windmagnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere system, as well as providing the channel for energy and momentum transfer between these systems. Knowledge of the field-aligned current (FAC) structure and dynamics is a key to understanding how solar wind energy is transferred from the magnetosphere to the ionosphere and thermosphere. In the last decade these current systems were extensively… CONTINUE READING
