Presentation by B. Mauk at Cassini MIMI Team Meeting, Oct. 9-11, 1997, Cape Canaveral, FL

Figure 1.  Meridian plane projection of magnetosphere field lines at 2 increments of co-latitude (solid) using the Z3 model internal field and the ring current model. Field lines are labeled with the co-latitude appropriate to the foot of the field line in the northern hemisphere. field lines drawn using the Z3 internal field and no ring current (dashed) are given at 4 increments for comparison. From Connerney et al.
