Seminar Abstract:

We will discuss the solar wind interaction with Earth’s magnetosphere based on several models that are developed recently to predict the daily averaged MeV electrons at geosynchronous orbit and the geomagnetic indices: Dst, AL, AU, and AE. The accuracy or lack of accuracy of these predictions demonstrate that solar wind controls the geomagnetic activity to different extent.
