List of Figures


Figure 1 . Variations of ion and magnetic field properties at the magnetopause during the 2 hour 20 min. time interval on February 15-16, 1996. UT and GSM coordinates in RE are indicated at the bottom. From top to bottom: two ion counting rate spectra for viewing angles 17o and 163o relative to the Sun; ion number density, temperature, and bulk velocity (computed assuming that all ions are protons); and magnetic field magnitude and its components in a boundary-normal coordinate system.




Figure 2 . The structure of the FTE observed at ~ 23:55 UT. UT and GSM coordinates in RE are indicated on the bottom. From top to bottom are shown: the ion count rate spectra of analyzers looking at 17o and 163o relative to the Sun, number density, ion temperature, magnetic field magnitude (red line) and its normal component Bn, total velocity (red line) and its Vl-component, Vm - component (red line), and Vn-component, and the ion b i.




Figure 3. A scatter plot of Ni-Ti for all time intervals shown on Fig. 1 (black dots). The values for transients (2), (3), and (4) are given separately in different colors and are progressively displaced along the abscissa scale to the right by a factor 2.5 in order to avoid overlapping. The leading, L, and the trailing, T, parts of these transients are indicated by ovals marked by L and T, respectively.
