Earth’s Magnetic Field is also
known as Geomagnetic Field.
It extends from the Earth’s
interior to where it meets the
Solar wind, a stream of charged
particles emanating from the
Earth’s magnetic field serves to
deflect most of the solar wind.
Earth's magnetic field, predominantly
dipolar at its surface, is distorted
further out by the solar wind.This is a
stream of charged particles leaving the
Sun's corona and accelerating to a
speed of 200 to 1000 kilometres per
second.They carry with them a
magnetic field, the interplanetary
magnetic field (IMF).
The area of space near
an astronomical object in
which charged particles are
controlled by that
object's magnetic field.
It is a donut-shaped region
containing low-energy charged
particles that could be found
inside the Magnetosphere.
The distance at which a planet
can withstand the solar wind
pressure is called the Chapman–
The area of the magnetosphere
wherein the pressure from the
planetary magnetic field is
balanced with the pressure from
the solar wind.
Opposite the compressed
magnetic field is the
magnetotail, where the
magnetosphere extends far
beyond the astronomical object.
