My major targets:
(1) The acceleration and outflow of ionospheric Oxygen and its effect on
the stability of the magnetospheric plasma and current distribution
(2) The physical coupling (via particle exchange and current flow)
between the ionosphere and magnetosphere
(3) The vertical coupling processes between the polar ionosphere and
lower atmosphere
