About the Project

The terrestrial magnetosphere is formed as a result of the interaction between the magnetic field of the Earth and the solar wind (quasineutral flow of electrons and ions from the Sun). Dynamical processes that occur in the magnetosphere can affect the operation of space based technological systems.

This project will focus on the study of dynamical processes in various regions of near Earth space using data gained by various spacecraft missions: Cluster, THEMIS and others.
