Abstract

The BATS-R-US MHD code is used to describe the large-scale structure of the magnetosphere whereby the model parameters are constrained by multi spacecraft Cluster data in the post-noon high-latitude magnetopause region. We discuss the potentials of the model in combination with the experimental data to accurately describe the dynamics of these regions in three-dimensions. A major aspect of this potential is to make predictions about the configuration of flux tubes at the magnetopause boundary and to visualize the open flux tubes passing by the spacecraft and observed simultaneously by ionospheric radars.
