Auroral evidence for multiple reconnection in the magnetospheric tail plasma sheet

Treumann, R. A., C. H. Jaroschek, and R. Pottelette (2009), Auroral evidence for multiple reconnection in the magnetospheric tail plasma sheet, Europhysics Letters, 85, 49001, doi:10.1209/0295-5075/85/49001, Letter, theoretical.

Abstract
We present auroral evidence for multiple and, most probably, small-scale reconnection
in the near-Earth magnetospheric plasma sheet current layer during auroral activity. Hall currents
as the source of upward and downward field-aligned currents require the generation of the
corresponding electron fluxes. The auroral spatial ordering in a multiple sequence of these
fluxes requires the assumption of the existence of several —and possibly— even many tailward
reconnection sites.
