Qinghe Zhang is a Research Associate of Geomagnetic Earth Observation from Space (GEOSPACE) group in the Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences, University of Liverpool, and a visiting scientist of Rutherford Appleton Laboratory, under Prof. Malcolm Dunlop (Rutherford Appleton Laboratory)’s and Dr. Richard Holme’s guidance. His poster is focusing on the comparisons between Cluster observations and the Tsyganenko model of the magnetic field in order to investigate the external current systems in the magnetosphere, and to distinguish them from the internal Earth field.
