Short summary
This paper describes an algorithm that automatically detects vortices around the Earth's magnetosphere using the velocity field from simulated data. It also describes how the tool can be used to analyze further properties of the vortices including the velocity changes within their motion across the magnetosheath. Vortices developed at the magnetopause boundary contribute to the process of mass, momentum and energy transfer from the solar wind into the Earth's magnetosphere.
