An equatorial map of K parameter for 100 keV electron ~2 min before the auroral breakup. Crosses mark the inner boundaries of the regions at the eastern edge, midnight, and the western edge. The settings of the input solar wind parameters are shown in Figure 1. The top panel shows the simulated AE/AL indices. The time stamps here are irrelevant to the actual event. The sun is to the left.
