Description: This web page, authored and curated by David Stern, discusses the interaction of the solar wind with the Earth's magnetosphere. The magnetopause is discussed at length, including the processes involved in the interaction and satellite explorations of the region in space. The page is broken down by first discussing the magnetopause, then its processes, the Earth's magnetic trail and concluding with a piece of solar wind monitoring. This is part of a large web site on Exploring the Earth's Magnetosphere. A Spanish translation is available.
