Three-dimensional flow near a reconnection site at the dayside magnetopause: analytical solutions coupled with MHD simulations: 3D solar wind flow

We present a coupling between an analytical three-dimensional model covering the plasma flow behaviour through the magnetopause transition layer near a reconnection site, with results from a global MHD simulation describing the plasma flow in the magnetosheath. The structure of the plasma flow near a reconnection site at the dayside terrestrial magnetopause is investigated, together with the development of the magnetopause transition region.
