Electrodynamic coupling between ionospheric convection patterns in the northern and southern hemispheres

V. E. Zakharov and M. I. Pudovkin V. E. Zakharov and M. I. Pudovkin

Abstract. A numerical model of the high-latitude ionospheric electric field is presented. To perform the calculations, a model of the field-aligned current source is proposed. The electric field patterns are calculated consistently both in the northern and southern hemispheres. Effects of season, universal time, solar and geomagnetic activity, the neutral atmosphere winds, and of the IMF sector structure are considered. In particular, dynamics of the parameters of convection cells are investigated that depend on the action of these factors. Comparison of the results with experimental data is carried out.
