2015 (English)In: Space Science Reviews, ISSN 0038-6308, E-ISSN 1572-9672, Vol. 192, no 1-4, 145-208 p.Article, review/survey (Refereed) PublishedText
This paper reviews the state of knowledge concerning the source of magnetospheric plasma at Earth. Source of plasma, its acceleration and transport throughout the system, its consequences on system dynamics, and its loss are all discussed. Both observational and modeling advances since the last time this subject was covered in detail (Hultqvist et al., Magnetospheric Plasma Sources and Losses, 1999) are addressed.
