This chapter discusses ionospheric effects. The ionosphere is a region of ionized plasma that extends from roughly 50 to 2,000 km above the surface of the Earth. The boundary of the Earth's magnetic field within the solar wind is known as the magnetopause; between the magnetopause and the ionosphere is the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere extends about 10 Earth radii in the direction of the Sun, acting as a 'bow wave' against the solar wind. On the other side of the Earth, the magneto sphere streams backwards for about 60 Earth radii.
