Abstract: Abstract. Recent observations by CEPPAD/IPS fromthe new perspective of the POLAR orbit reveal a close association of field-aligned ionospheric beams with convecting plasmasheet "nose" ions. April 15, 1996 was marked by a large southward Bz accompanying a fast solar wind shock. This event triggered a strong crosstail convection electric field that pushed plasmasheet ions deep into the magnetosphere. When the POLAR spacecraft passed through the inner magnetosphere, it observed both an unusually energetic plasma…
