Abstract [en]

A statistical investigation of the relationship between Lorentz force and Bursty Bulk Flow event (BBF) spatial location in the magnetotail is undertaken. Data is obtained in situ by the ESA Cluster II mission during the period July to October 2004. Firstly, a short introduction to BBFs and the Cluster mission is presented. Secondly, the curlometer method for determining Current densities in the Inner Central Plasma Sheet and its approximations are discussed. The curlometer method uses magnetic field density data from the Fluxgate Magnetometer (FGM) instrument and plasma velocities are obtained by the Hot Ion Analyzer (HIA) instrument. The satellite separation at the time of the measurement in the year 2004 was on the order of 1000 km. Results of the investigation are inconclusive. A few possible sources of error and reference material are mentioned.
