Abstract: Abstract.We report progress in the long-term effort to represent the interaction of the solar wind with the Earth's magnetosphere using a three-dimensional electromagnetic particle code. After a quasi-steady state is established with an unmagnetized solar wind we gradually switch on a northward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF), which causes a magnetic reconnection on the magnetopause tailward of the dayside cusps and makes the magnetosphere dipolarized. In the case that the northward IMF is switched gradua…
