Abstract: The interaction between the solar wind and the Earth's magnetic field creates a vast magnetic cavity within the solar wind flow, known as the magnetosphere. Through various solar wind-magnetosphere interactions, about one million megawatts of energy enters the magnetosphere to drive electrical currents, energize plasma, and produce complex and variable patterns of plasma convection. Since the ... View entire text
