The 18 January 2002

18 January 2002

I have chosen to study this day due to its varying IMF conditions. I want you to investigate what is happening on the Sun, in the solar wind, and in the magnetosphere/ionosphere system on this day, using all available data sources. Then you should prepare a power point presentation of your results
Here are some of the questions that you should attempt to answer:

1. What are the IMF conditions like ?
2. What is the shape of the global convection pattern in both hemispheres?
3. Do we observe any aurora ?
4. Are the any spacecraft observations ?
Here are some good places to look.......

University of Oslo auroral observations
Applied Physics Laboratory
