Abstract

Abstract It is shown that there is no qualitative difference between weak and intense substorms. In this paper, the growth of the electrojet across the Canada meridian chain and plasma behaviors at the synchronous distance are compared in detail for a weak and intense substorm which occurred successively on 14 July 1970. The present study, together with earlier ones, shows clearly that it is incorrect to distinguish weak substorms from more intense substorms by calling the former “local” substorms or a growth phase of more intense substorms.
