interplanetary magnetic field

Last Updated: Sep 15, 2014 04:10PM UTC
As the Sun emits the constant stream of plasma known as the solar wind, part of its magnetic field becomes trapped and is carried by the wind. This magnetic field travels out into interplanetary space with the solar wind and is known as the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF). Its orientation (direction) is important in the formation of geomagnetic storms.
