The Earth’s Magnetic Field and the Geomagnetic Effects

  • Mario Bertolotti
Chapter
Part of the Astronomers' Universe book series (ASTRONOM)

Abstract

The researches described until now regarded the nature of cosmic rays on the Earth, but had given no direct information on the nature of the “primary” cosmic rays that are falling on the Earth from outside. This information came from the study of new effects, due to the presence of the Earth’s magnetic field.

Keywords

Charged Particle Magnetic Storm Geomagnetic Latitude Magnetic Equator Forbush Decrease 
These keywords were added by machine and not by the authors. This process is experimental and the keywords may be updated as the learning algorithm improves.
