Abstract : Important advances were made in understanding the dynamics of the magnetosphere and its coupling to the ionosphere. Significant progress was made in the areas of polar cusp precipitation and dynamics; dayside auroral morphology and auroral boundary dynamics; polar rain; the quiescent polar cap; the physics of impulsive injection phenomena; and problems of global magnetospheric plasma transport. Keywords: Auroral oval, Magneto sheaths, Polar cap absorption, Defense meteorological satellite program, Magnetosphere, Ionosphere, Aurora, Cusp, Storm, Particle precipitation, Magnetic storms.
