Short summary
We present (1) K–H vortices in direct response to the northward turning of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF); (2) solar wind transport into the magnetosphere caused by the K–H vortices, involving both ion and electron fluxes; and (3) typical portraits of the ion and electron fluxes in the regions of plasma transport. The unique characteristics may complement existing observations and enhance our understanding of the K–H vortices and transport process.
