What is it about?

Dipolarization fronts (DFs), which are mostly characterized by a sharp and transient increase in the normal component (northward) of the magnetic field in the magnetotail, are formed by the plasma flow propagation or can be also embedded in the flow. The sharp increase in the magnetic field is often interpreted as the magnetic field pile up behind the front.
