Penetration Jet

  • Strong Stormtime Electric Fields appear between the plasmasheet and the plasmapause

  • Statistical Studies indicate the Persistence and Predictability of the Penetration Jet

  • Storm Enhanced Density is formed where the Penetration Jet overlaps the Plasmasphere

  • Polarization Electric Fields Structure the Outer Plasmasphere forming Plasmaspheric Tails

  • Poleward-Directed Electric Field Spans the Midnight Sector Equatorward of the Auroral Two-Cell Convection Pattern

Effects of Penetrating Electric Fields

  • Cross-tail electric fields energize and inject particles into the inner magnetosphere forming the disturbance Ring Current

  • Penetrating electric fields uplift and perturb the Plasmasphere and low-latitude ionosphere

  • Storm-Enhanced Density (SED) and detached plasmas are formed as the Penetration Jet overlaps the outer plasmasphere

  • Injected Energetic Ions are Destabilized in Regions of Enhanced Plasma Density
