Title: Recent advancements and remaining challenges associated with inner magnetosphere cross-energy/population interactions (IMCEPI)

Abstract

The geospace inner magnetosphere, within about ten Earth radii, contains various plasma populations with energy from a few eV to MeV and plays important roles in regulating the energy density of the magnetosphere, the magnetic field configuration, and wave dynamics. As an integrated part of the magnetosphere, the inner magnetosphere region also ties to other regions and can change the global geospace circulation. Therefore understanding both internal and external cross–energy/population interactions can help further our knowledge of the inner magnetosphere dynamics and non–linear feedback processes. In view of this, in the past five years (2014–2018), the GEM Focus Group (FG) “Inner magnetosphere cross–energy/population interactions (IMCEPI)” has gathered and boosted community–wide interactions among observation, simulation and modeling studies. As a result, this commentary reports some major accomplishments of the interactive inner magnetosphere community that were advanced by the IMCEPI FG discussions and layouts remaining challenges that need to be carried on.
