Investigation of the Interaction Between Magnetosheath Reconnection and Magnetopause Reconnection Driven by Oblique Interplanetary Tangential Discontinuity Using Three-Dimensional Global Hybrid Simulation

Zhifang Guo, Lin Yu & Wang Xueyi
Magnetosheath reconnection due to the interaction of an interplanetary directional discontinuity with the bow shock and Earth's magnetosphere under an initially northward interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) has been investigated in previous simulations (e.g., Guo et al., 2018, https://doi.org/10.1029/2018ja025679). Under an initially southward IMF, the magnetosheath reconnection could interact with reconnection at the magnetopause. In this study, using three-dimensional (3D) globalscale hybrid simulations, we present cases with incoming tangential discontinuities (TDs) in an initially southward IMF,...
