Short summary
The interplanetary magnetic field is a consequence of the solar magnetic field and the solar wind. Different magnetic field models exist in literature that allow us to better understand how the solar field extends throughout the solar system. We highlight different aspects of these different interplanetary magnetic field models and discuss possible applications. Verification of these models will become possible using data from the Parker Solar Probe and BepiColombo space mission.
