We will have a panel discussion on the questions below with an aim to communicate different types of models' capabilities to answer different science questions, as well as a discussion on how we can move forward towards improved, data-informed models. We invite the audience to participate in the discussion and to provide input as to how we, as a field, can move forward to better understand how dipolarizations affect the inner magnetosphere, and/or how they are affected by the coupled magnetosphere-ionosphere system.

Panelists
Misha Sitnov
San Lu
Jimmy Raeder
Yann Kempf
Colby Lemon
Katie Garcia-Sage

Panel Questions

1) Given our current modeling capabilities, discuss which kinds of models are best at capturing which aspects of dipolarization events and their effects in the magnetosphere.

2) What determines the dipolarization scale size in different models? (e.g., physical description, boundary conditions, model input parameters, ionosphere conditions, etc.?)

3) The transition region is where both inertia and energy dependent drifts are important. No existing models treat that region correctly.

  (a) How do we move forward?
  (b) Or, more specifically, address the question of dipolarization front deceleration: 
     (i) How do various models treat dipolarization deceleration as they approach the inner magnetosphere?  
     (ii) What processes are decelerating the fronts in the models? 
     (iii) What inner magnetosphere processes are missing (e.g. plasmasphere, complex ionospheric conductivity models) and does excluding these processes lead to different deceleration predictions?
  (c) And/or address:
     (i) What are the relative roles of ExB, energy-dependent drifts and particle trapping in transport and energization in the transition region?
     (ii) To what extent are these processes adiabatic for particles of different energies?
     (iii) What is their overall contribution to the ring current build up? 

Although the questions are focusing on dipolarization implementation into the current magnetospheric models, participation of data analysts is highly desired and encouraged in order to establish an observational framework for the models.
