The distributions are similar in nature to those seen from the low-latitude boundary layer and cusp on the dayside.
Such events occur in the dayside cusp and polar cap regions during southward IMF conditions.
Excellent coverage of the entire dayside high-latitude ionosphere was achieved by all of the northern hemisphere SuperDARN radars.
Cluster PEACE observations of electrons at the dayside magnetopause.
No evidence of Kelvin-Helmholtz waves at the dayside or flank magnetopause, nor viscous interaction, was found in this simulation.
