Conjugate Observations of Electromagnetic Ion Cyclotron (EMIC) Waves Associated with Traveling Convection Vortex (TCV) Events
This paper shows a clear connection between a phenomenon at the edge of geospace (the magnetopause) and something deep within the inner magnetosphere that normally isn't associated with that other process. Specifically, the authors observed a twisted magnetic field line structure, called a traveling convection vortex, and the generation of a particular plasma wave. They attribute the cause of both features to be a solar wind pressure pulse.
