  • The conditions determining the dynamical behavior of the ionized gas in the outer atmosphere of the earth are discussed. It is proposed to call this region in which the magnetic field of the earth dominates the ‘magnetosphere.’ Observations by Van Allen and others indicate that this zone reaches out to between 5 and 10 earth radii, depending on the degree of magnetic disturbance. It is shown that the existence of an insulating layer at the base of this region, namely the non-ionized… CONTINUE READING
