In science:

Field-aligned currents generated in the magnetosphere: I - zone of inflow currents, 2 - zone of outflow currents; a) t=0 s; b) t=1000 s; c) t=2800 s.
Concerning the conjugation of field-aligned currents
One can see that “demand” and “supply” are more or less identical for the arrangements of the zones. It should be noted that the integral over all inflow and outflow currents in Fig. 5 is virtually zero.
Concerning the conjugation of field-aligned currents
