Model of Earth's Magnetospheric Magnetic Field

The proposed ISO standard "Model of Earth's Magnetospheric Magnetic Field" is developed jointly by research teams from Skobeltsyn Institute of Nuclear Physics, Moscow State University, Russa and Geomagnetics Group, U. S. Geological Servey. It is intended to calculate the magnetic induction field generated from a variety of current systems located on the boundaries and within the boundaries of the Earth's magnetosphere under a wide range of environmental conditions, quiet and disturbed, affected by Solar-Terrestrial interactions simulated by Solar activity such as Solar Flares and related phenomena which induce terrestrial magnetic disturbances such as Magnetic Storms. The model has applications in Space Weather Forecasting, human health radiation hazards determination, the estimation of spacecraft and electronic devices integrity, and in pure and applied space physics environmental research.
