Abstract : The objective of the work has been to study convective plasma motion in the Earth's magnetosphere-ionosphere system during magnetic storms and substorms. Using the Rice Convection Model, multiple simulations have been performed for several well-observed events. Model predictions have been compared with observational data, and the computer model has been improved in several respects.
