SM008:
Solar-Terrestrial Interactions: Dayside Transients





Session ID#: 27356

Session Description:
The interaction of the solar wind with the Earth’s magnetosphere is often unsteady and produces a wide variety of dayside transients.  The aim of this session is to focus on observational and theoretical studies of dayside transients such as poleward moving auroral forms, convection flow channels, traveling convection vortices, flux transfer events, and magnetic impulse events.  The priority is to identify the mechanisms driving events and establishing their significance via studies combining observations from spacecraft and ground-based instruments within the context of results from theoretical models and computer simulations.
