The Information below is analysis of the earth's geomagnetic field by school students, amateur scientists and interested parties. They are provided for the purpose of collaboration and to facilitate the learning process. (if you would like y our information posted here please contact us) [help][faq]
Interplanetary Magnetic Field (IMF) - Solar wind (particle
emissions from the sun) carries the Sun's coronal magnetic field
particle emissions (interplanetary magnetic field).
Magnetosphere - The space surrounding the earth where the earth's self-generated, magnetic field is strong. This field is influenced by, the interplanetary magnetic field that originates from the Sun. The magnetosphere is loosely attached to the earth's ionosphere by currents that flow along geomagnetic field effect and can greatly influence the force of electrical currents into and out of the earth's ionosphere.
