Asset Details

  • Description:
  • H+ Velocity distribution in the low‐latitude boundary layer (LLBL) from the time period in Figure . The format is the same as in Figure . The population propagating antiparallel to the magnetic field at ~250 km/s is the magnetosheath population propagating toward the ionosphere. The 1‐D cut in this population in the bottom panel is fitted with a Maxwellian and the cutoff velocity is labeled VE. The population propagating parallel to the magnetic field at ~800 km/s is the part of the magnetosheath population that propagated to the ionosphere, mirrored, and returned to the spacecraft. This population is also fit with a Maxwellian and the cutoff velocity is labeled VM. The cutoff velocities of the earthward and mirrored populations are used to calculate the distance from the spacecraft to the reconnection site.
