Short summary
Convection reversal boundary (CRB) is a special characteristic of plasma flow patterns in the high-latitude ionosphere. It is typically a border line between regions with closed and open Earth’s magnetic field lines. This paper investigates seasonal and solar cycle trends in the CRB location. We use an extensive Super Dual Auroral Radar Network data base for 19 years of operation and apply a non-standard approach of making monthly averaged convection maps.
