Coupling of the Solar Wind to the MagnetosphereSolar wind-magnetosphere coupling is considered in the context of four major questions. The first of these questions is concerned with the process of solar wind plasma entry. The processes of energy and momentum transfer from the solar wind to the magnetosphere comprise the focus of the second question. The third question deals with the physics of magnetospheric boundary layers, specifically their role as generators, loads, and plasma transport regions. The final question concerns the global magnetohydrodynamics that characterize the magnetosphere for the various coupling processes and as functions of solar wind parameters.
