[en] Data from the High Energy Neutral Atom (ENA) and the far ultraviolet (FUV) imagers on IMAGE were compared for a six hour period during which a reasonably intense substorm occurred. The substorm presented is typical of a substorm expansive phase showing that while the total electron precipitation suddenly increase one whole order of magnitude, the protons increase only about 50%. In principle ENA images represent the trapped fluxes in the magnetosphere while the proton aurora measured by the FUV SI12 instrument represents the precipitating component. At substorm onset the increase in intensity of the auroral protons and electrons is very sudden while the intensification of the ENA-s coming from regions of L<6 is much more gradual. The intensification of the precipitating electrons is relatively short lived ( ~ 10 minutes) while the ENA enhancements are long lived (almost a whole hour). Just prior to the substorm expansive phase (in the growth phase) the precipitated proton and electron fluxes encounter a minimum while the ENA-s show a slight growth.
