The effects on the terrestrial atmosphere and ionosphere of energy and momentum sources of magnetospheric origin are investigated theoretically. Parameters measured by instruments on board the GGS spacecraft and by the GGS ground-based networks are used as inputs to the models that quantify the magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere coupling. Images of the aurora acquired at ultraviolet, visible and X-ray wavelengths by instruments on board the POLAR spacecraft are particularly useful in this investigation by yielding good spatial coverage and high time resolution of the aurora.
