The author presents results from efforts to develop a more realistic data based model of the magnetic field of the earth as it extends into the magnetosphere, and is draped into the magnetotail. The author attempts in this work to address what are considered to be several of the major deficiencies of the previous work. These include a model which did not well merge into the magnetopause, a poor treatment of the K{sub p} index, and inaccurate treatments of the B{sub z} component in the equatorial magnetotail. These efforts are compared to spacecraft based measurements.

While the large IMF‐By component during the event and the tailward (<−12 RE) location of Cluster observations make it unreliable to estimate the foot point of the Cluster location using the T96 model [Tsyganenko, 1995], the correspondence in overall duration (∼20 min) of the ionospheric ...
