High-time-resolution observations of an FTE using Cluster

Publication date:

Schematic showing the layers of an FTE. From Varsani et al. (2014)

We have presented the Cluster observations of a crater FTE on 12 February 2007, when the quartet was located in the low-latitude boundary layer, and widely separated on the magnetopause plane. The passage of the structure was sequentially observed by Cluster 2, 3, 4 and 1 respectively, analysed in detail. But what are flux transfer events, and why are they important within the magnetosphere?
