The magnetosphere regions and boundaries models

The Earth's magnetosphere global structure is conditioned by the interaction of the Solar wind and Earth's magnetic field.
About the modern Earth's magnetosphere status and the history of its exploration see the Home Page "The Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere".
This section paid the main attention to the magnetosphere topology, magnetospheric structures' and boundaries' shape and position, leaving a side the physical aspects.
Many various magnetospheric models are available in the
For the INTERBALL project situation analysis the following magnetospheric models are used.
