View Resource Magnetospheres of other Planets

This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, outlines the magnetic properties of the planets. Most large planets in the solar system have magnetic fields, probably produced quite differently from ours. This is part of a large work, "The Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere", that gives a non-mathematical introduction to the magnetic properties of the planets and the sun, space...

View Resource Cosmic Rays

This series of web pages, authored and curated by David P. Stern, gives an elementary discussion of cosmic rays, followed by sections on high energy particles in the universe and high-energy particles from the Sun. It describes the existence particles whose velocity approaches that of light, their probable sources, and their measurement. This is part of a large work, "The Exploration of the...

View Resource Folding Paper Model of the Earth's Magnetosphere

This website, created by authors David P. Stern and Mauricio Peredo, provides instructions and an image which can be downloaded, printed on a regular page, copied by a xerox machine (preferably, onto stiff paper), cut and folded to produce a model of the Earth's magnetosphere. A supplement to "Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere" whose index page is linked at the beginning and the end of the...

View Resource The Great Magnet, the Earth

This is a non-mathematical overview of magnetism and the Earth's magnetic field, written for the 400th anniversary of William Gilbert's book "De Magnete". It includes discussions of electromagnetism, solar magnetism, dynamo theory, ocean floor magnetization, and magnetospheres of Earth and planets. There is also a review of "A Millennium of Geomagnetism" and recommendations for teachers of this...

View Resource Magnetic Substorms, Storms and Space Weather

This web page, created by David P. Stern, describes magnetic substorms and storms, their properties, and their relations to charged particle flow and auroras. It includes descriptions of the magnetic field changes in the storms and the sources of energy. This is part of a larger work, "The Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere". Other parts of this work cover the polar aurora, the solar wind,...
