             abstract = "Flux transfer events (FTE) have been interpreted to be results 
                         from transient magnetic reconnection and can be observed in the 
                         vicinity of the Earths magnetopause, as well in other planets. FTE 
                         acts as a flux tube connecting the magnetosheath to the 
                         magnetosphere allowing the transference of particles, energy and 
                         momentum in both sides magnetopause. Their main signatures in 
                         satellite data are bipolar variation in the magnetic field 
                         component normal to the magnetopause, centered in an enhanced 
                         magnetic field strength. Other signatures such as pressure 
                         imbalance, bulk flow jets, and particle anisotropy distribution 
                         can be observed inside the those structures. We surveyed FTEs 
                         observed by MMS on the vicinity of the magnetopause (from x = 0 to 
                         13Re and y = -12 to 12Re). Taking advantage of the MMS tetrahedron 
                         configuration we will employed timing analysis to determine the 
                         FTEs direction of motion and scale lengths. We will present 
                         information about occurrence related with IMF clock angle and 
                         other parameters, amplitude of the perturbations induced by the 
                         FTEs in the environment magnetic field and plasma; characteristic 
                         time and structure scale size. Using data from ACE, Wind and 
                         Artemis we can evaluate which is the best solar wind monitor for 
                         each FTE observed and then employ the appropriated lag time 
                         corresponding to FTE location and magnetic field orientation. The 
                         objective is to investigate the mechanisms of generation of FTEs 
                         comparing characteristics of the events observed on the dayside 
                         region and on the magnetopause flanks determining the motion and 
                         speed of FTEs.",
