Short summary
A significant number of studies published over the last 15 years demonstrate that there is strong two-way coupling between the magnetosphere and ionosphere during geomagnetic activity; not only does the ionosphere respond to magnetospheric forcing during storms, but through its impact on wave generation, wave-particle interactions, ion outflow and mass loading at the dayside magnetopause and in the magnetotail, dense plasma plumes modulate the subsequent magnetospheric dynamics.
