Table 2 The mean differences between the peaks of electron/ion energy flux and upward/downward FACs separately for dusk and dawn sides and two hemispheres. Only the conditions with Bz < 5 nT have been considered

From: Relationship between large-scale ionospheric field-aligned currents and electron/ion precipitations: DMSP observations

  Dusk Dawn
Electron flux and upward FAC (R1) Ion flux and downward FAC (R2) Electron flux and upward FAC (R2) Ion flux and downward FAC (R1)
NH − 2.0º 1.1º 0.6º − 3.4º
SH − 1.8º 1.1º 0.2º − 3.8º
