On the 09/08/2002 the Cluster spacecrafts footprint where located within the field of view of the Syowa East SuperDARN radar. The variations in the magnetospheric electric field observed by the spacecrafts were compared to the line-of-sight velocity observed by radar. The 3 min delay was observed during magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling.
