Dynamical Properties of the Magnetosphere

I want to start with a general review of the whole geomagnetic field and mention problems some of which I think have been pretty well solved, in the sense of being pretty well understood, and some of which are very definitely not understood, even though there are some people that think they are understood. If there is more than one person who feels that a problem is understood and these persons do not agree with each other, I usually assume that the problem is not understood. I have to admit that I fall into this category myself at times, where I think something is understood and someone else does not. (See Parker and Ferraro (1968) for a general review of the magnetosphere.)
