Description

We apply three IMF orientations along with an artificial depression in the solar dynamic pressure to study their impacts on the cusp dynamics and orientation. PIC EM Relativistic code was used to investigate the problem in hand. Particles and fields updates are carefully studied at both northern and southern cusps. The size, position and shape of the both cusps under the said conditions are thoroughly covered. Both cusps orientation, position and shape are found to be highly susceptible for dynamic pressure gradients and the orientation of IMF under short duration of time. Other featured outputs are reported, such as signature of reconnection at both north and south cusps.
