Abstract

Ion flows in Earth's magnetosphere include a plethora of phenomena for example, in the magnetotail region, reconnection produces high-speed flows of plasma which themselves creates additional perturbation of the background plasma motion. We use the large amount of data obtained from Earth orbiting satellites to investigate magnetospheric flows using various data analysis methods such as neural network. The use of neural network has, to our knowledge, never been done in magnetospheric space physics.
