Magnetopause magnetic barrier parameters in dependence on the solar wind magnetic field orientation

M. I. Pudovkin, S. A. Zaitseva, and B. P. Besser M. I. Pudovkin et al.

Abstract. Some theories predict the magnetosheath magnetic field strength will decrease and the density increase just outside the dayside magnetopause as the interplanetary magnetic field turns southward. Two studies have recently reported results which confirm these expectations. In contrast, we briefly review our own theoretical predictions which indicate that precisely the opposite effect is expected. We survey new and previously reported magnetosheath observations and demonstrate that they are consistent with the predictions of our model. The conflicting results indicate a need for further theoretical and observational work.
