Abstract/Summary

We examine the nature of flows in the nightside auroral zone ionosphere and their relationship with concurrent geomagnetic activity by studying a three-hour interval of ground-based radar, magnetometer array and spacecraft data. We find that the flows are bursty in nature, a characteristic previously reported, and that the bursts are related to a series of substorm electrojet intensifications initiated in the pre-midnight sector.
