Short summary
We used 14 satellites(GOES, POES, THEMIS, RBSP, FENGYUN, REPTile) measurement to investigate the loss mechanisms of a electron dropout event during a intense solar wind dynamic pressure pulse. The observations demonstrated that magnetopause shadowing and atmospheric loss both play important roles in electron flux dropout. Moreover, substrom injections and convection strongly enhanced the energetic electron fluxes, which may delay other than avoid the occurrence of electron flux dropout.
