Magnetosphere

View this topic in
A magnetosphere is formed when a stream of charged particles, such as the solar wind, interacts with and is deflected by the intrinsic magnetic field of a planet or similar body. (Wikipedia.org)

The solar wind interaction with the Earth's magnetosphere: a tutorial

Russell, C.T. Plasma Science, IEEE Transactions on, 2000

The size of the terrestrial magnetosphere is determined by the balance between the solar wind dynamic pressure and the pressure exerted by the magnetosphere, principally that of its magnetic field. The shape of the magnetosphere is additionally influenced by the drag of the solar wind, or tangential stress, on the magnetosphere. This drag is predominantly caused by the mechanism known ...


Satellite observations of electric fields in the inner magnetosphere and their effects in the mid-to-low latitude ionosphere

Burke, W.J.; Maynard, N.C. Plasma Science, IEEE Transactions on, 2000

During geomagnetic disturbances, momentum and energy are transferred in significant quantities from interplanetary space to the magnetosphere- ionosphere system through the mediation of charged particles and electric fields. The most dramatic manifestations occur in the plasma sheet and the conjugate auroral ionosphere. However, electric fields observed during magnetic storms also penetrate the inner magnetosphere that maps to subauroral latitudes in ...


Nonlinear dynamics of the magnetosphere and space weather

Sharma, A.S. Plasma Science, 1996. IEEE Conference Record - Abstracts., 1996 IEEE International Conference on, 1996

Summary form only given. The solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere system exhibits coherence on the global scale and such behaviour can arise from nonlinearity in the dynamics. The observational time series data have been used extensively to analyze the magnetospheric dynamics by using the techniques of phase space reconstruction. Analyses of the solar wind and auroral electrojet and Dst indices have shown low ...


Electrodynamics of solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions

Kan, J.R.; Akasofu, S.-I. Plasma Science, IEEE Transactions on, 1989

The authors present a coherent picture of fundamental physical processes in three basic elements of the SW-I (solar wind-magnetosphere-ionosphere) coupling system: (i) the field-aligned potential structure which leads to the formation of auroral arcs; (ii) the magnetosphere coupling which leads to the onset of magnetospheric substorms; and (iii) the solar wind-magnetosphere dynamo which supplies the power for driving various magnetospheric ...


Coupling between the solar wind and the magnetosphere during strong driving: MHD Simulations

Lopez, R.E.; Wiltberger, M.; Lyon, J.G. Plasma Science, IEEE Transactions on, 2004

We examine the simulation of the January 10, 1997, magnetic storm using the Lyon-Fedder-Mobarry three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic simulation of the interaction of the solar wind with the magnetosphere. We explore the response of the energy coupling between the solar wind and the magnetosphere during the extreme solar wind conditions produced by magnetic cloud that hit the Earth's magnetosphere during the first ...
