Title: STCE - Earth’s magnetosphere and ionosphere
Authors: DE KEYSER, J. (BIRA); STANKOV, S. (RMI); VERHULST, T. (RMI)
Abstract: The Earth’s magnetic field creates a cavity in interplanetary space, called the magnetosphere. Physical processes in this region of space determine how mass and energy from the solar wind reach the ionosphere, the partially ionized upper atmosphere. Magnetosphere and ionosphere are strongly coupled. Together, they modulate the impacts of solar activity on man and technology. This paper presents a brief overview of the magnetosphere-ionosphere system under quiet conditions, followed by a summary of the most important dynamic effects during disturbed conditions.
