Short summary
The frontal region of Earth's magnetic shield, the magnetopause, is very often impacted by high-speed jets of solar origin that can trigger multiple geophysical effects. Our study brings novel results that contribute to understanding the dynamics of such structures. We performed advanced simulations and demonstrate the formation of a peculiar particle distribution of the energy (the crescent-shaped electron distribution) at the edges of plasma jets interacting with the magnetopause.
