Figure 1. Schematic representation of the electric currents flowing in the Earth's magnetosphere-and ionosphere (the view from the nightside magnetosphere). The lines with arrows show the magnetospheric currents: the magnetopause current, ring current, cross-magnetotail current sheet, FACs connecting the magnetosphere with the ionosphere including the substorm current wedge (SCW) that closes in the nightside auroral ionosphere (adopted from [Gvishiani and Lukianova, 2015]). The ionospheric footprints of R1 and R2 currents are not shown.
