Abstract Using an idealised magnetospheric-ionospheric circuit between conjugate points, a determination has been made of the relative, world-wide precipitation of magnetospheric electrons into the lower, denser atmosphere. The precipitation considered is that due to the superposition of a longitudinal electric field along the direction of the magnetic field lines. The patterns so found are thus an appropriate transformation of the controlling ionospheric wind velocity distribution used, suitably modified in accordance with the electric characteristics of the magnetospheric and ionospheric paths. Patterns are presented for the precipitation of electrons of various energies; an indication of the temporal variation of one of these is also given.
