Abstract. The inter-scale coupling in the dynamics of the magnetic field in the Earth's magnetospheric cusp is studied with the technique of transfer entropy. This is a non-linear data analysis technique conceived to determine which is the process that plays the role of the "dynamical driver" between two processes interacting.

The time series of the magnetic field components measured along the trajectory of a spacecraft through the cusp are decomposed via continuous wavelets, so a time series of the square modulus of the wavelet coefficients may be associated to each scale ℓ considered. The coupling between to two nearby scales is studied, with the purpose of singling out turbulent cascade directions from large to small scales and viceversa.

Preliminary physical conclusions are proposed.
