Abstract [en]

The development of a magnetospheric substorm may be classified into three phases: growth, expansion, and recovery. The growth phase is important as it includes processes that lead to the expansion. In a recent growth-phase study, a type of fast discrete auroral transient phenomena?referred to as Lumikot?were observed. The Lumikot are several kilometers across and move in the high-energy precipitation region, parallel to the main growth-phase arc, with both east-west and west-east directions of travel during the same event. Their apparent transverse movement and quasi-stable intensity make them distinct from cooccurring optical pulsating aurorae. Comparison to other studies show that they occur in the cosmic noise absorption region and it is likely that the Lumikot are colocated with high-energy particle populations on the boundary between the outer radiation belt and the plasmasheet.
