Short summary
The Kelvin–Helmholtz waves are believed to be an effective way to transport solar wind mass and energy into Earth's magnetosphere. In this study, we show that the ion-scale flux rope generated at the trailing edge of Kelvin–Helmholtz waves by multiple X-line reconnection could be directly related to this transfer process. The lower hybrid drift waves detected at the edges of the flux rope can also contribute to this process and then affect the revolution of the flux rope.
