Mapping of electric fields and convection under ideal MHD or perfect gyro-trapping from the magnetopause to the ionosphere needs special caution, especially in critical regions such as the cusp and the boundary layer. Besides the existence of parallel electric fields which have been repeatedly pointed out by AlfvÃ©n, non-Maxwellian plasma distribution is another important factor that limits such mappings. The non-Maxwellian distribution sometimes destroy even the hydrodynamic concept of the convection. Â© 1997 Published by Elsevier Science Ltd.
