Paper Abstract

Magnetometer and riometer data from the Kara sea meridian stations, VIKING image data, and DMSP F7 spacecraft particle detectors data for substorms on April 5, and 9, 1986 have been used to examine relation of filamentary structure of the westward electrojet to auroral absorption, aurorae, and ionospheric conductivity in the midnight auroral zone. Good correspondence between all these phenomena has been established.
