Long-term goals The goal of the project is to conduct scientific studies to elucidate the momentum and energy processes that play a significant role in magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling at high latitudes, with the emphasis on mesoscale 100 km plasma phenomena. Objectives We will conduct simulations with a high-latitude data assimilation model. The specific objectives are to study magnetosphere-ionosphere M-I coupling processes for 1 super storms, pulsating storms, and substorm, 2 different seasons and solar activity levels, 3 relatively smooth and highly structured convection and precipitation scenarios, and 4 both northward and southward Interplanetary Magnetic Field IMF configurations.
