7. Summary

The general substorm correspondence of the behavior of the magnetic field at (-0.8,-0.6,8.5) is clear. The magnetic field increases during the loading phase and decreases during the unloading phase. Good correspondence of the polar field variations and the ground onsets is seen. Activity at the GEOTAIL spacecraft to the dawnside of the near tail however is delayed, presumably due to the east-west propagation lag of the current wedge.
