MHD Simulation of Earth's Magnetosphere

Southward and Northward Interplanetary Magnetic Fields (IMFs)


Computer simulation of the earth's magnetosphere for northward and southward IMF conditions by using a 3-dimensional global MHD model to study interaction between the solar wind and the magnetosphere.

  1. 3D Magnetic field lines for northward IMF
  2. 3D Magnetic field lines for southward IMF
  3. Magnetic field lines in view from sun for northward IMF
  4. Magnetic field lines in view from sun for southward IMF
  5. Integration of magnetospheric energy for northward IMF
  6. Integration of magnetospheric energy for southward IMF
  7. Magnetospheric energy in cross section at x=-10Re for northward IMF
  8. Magnetospheric energy in cross section at x=-10Re for southward IMF
  9. Magnetospheric energy in cross section at x=-100Re for northward IMF
  10. Magnetospheric energy in cross section at x=-100Re for southward IMF
  11. Projection of minimum B and V regions for northward IMF
  12. Projection of minimum B and V regions for southward IMF
