<p><strong>Abstract.</strong> During steady magnetospheric convection (SMC) events the magnetosphere is active, yet there are no data signatures of a large scale reconfiguration, such as a substorm. While this definition has been used for years it fails to elucidate the true physics that is occurring within the magnetosphere, which is that the dayside merging rate and the nightside reconnection rate balance. Thus, it is suggested that these events be renamed Balanced Reconnection Intervalsdoi:10.5194/angeo-26-3897-2008 fatcat:34mp54354bh67ouomj6tpj4mpy
