Alexander Lukin is a PhD student at the National Research University Higher School of Economics, department of Physics (Moscow, Russia), and is also working in the Space Research Institute of RAS (Moscow, Russia). His main research interest in spacecraft data analysis and theoretical models of plasma physics in the Earth magnetosphere with the focus on the night-side magnetopause structure and dynamics. The poster presented at EGU2019 has been devoted to multi-spacecraft investigations of the flank magnetopause. Using two years of simultaneous magnetopause observations by THEMIS and MMS spacecraft, Alexander has shown evolution of the main magnetopause characteristics, e.g., thickness, current density magnitude and plasma properties, with the radial distance from the Earth.
