Short summary
Previous studies show that the ring current (RC) and field-aligned currents (FACs) are the dominant currents in the inner magnetosphere. However, through two large storm events observed by Cluster, we find new strong southward and northward currents in the latitudinal region from 10° N to 30° N. Theoretical analysis indicates that these currents originated from the fluctuation of magnetic field lines during strong geomagnetic storms.
