The theory of charged current sheets is compared with plasma data of Prognoz-8, Interball-1, Polar, and Cluster satellites. The possibility of momentum and energy transfer into the magnetosphere, irrespective of magnetic field line reconnection, as a specific dynamo effect, is shown. This relates statistical properties of the turbulent boundary layers with the character of the transfer through thin boundaries.
