The influence of average plasma energy on the half-thickness ℓ of a thin current sheet (TCS) is investigated for three cases of TCSs crossings. The value of ℓ was estimated from the magnetic field data by means of Cluster observations. The obtained half-thickness values for TCSs were compared with the scaling which assumes a specific dynamics (conservation of magnetic flux through the trajectory segment) of the current carriers. The comparison shows a good agreement.
