Abstract/Summary

Observations are presented of short-lived, highly structured bursts of rapid plasma flow observed with the EISCAT radar in the high latitude dayside ionosphere. It is shown that the properties of the bursts are consistent with ionospheric perturbations caused by impulsive, localized reconnection at the Earth's magnetopause, i.e. by flux transfer events.
