Abstract: The use of a global MHD simulation to study the magnetospheric configuration is demonstrated by reviewing some of the results obtained with the model of Ogino (1986). The steady-state configuration of the magnetosphere in the absence of an IMF is considered, and it is demonstrated that this configuration is changed when a northward or southward IMF is introduced. It is noted that the magnetosphere is very dynamic, and that, since global MHD simulations are intrinsically time-dependent, they offer the possibility of modeling the time sequence of events in the magnetosphere. Results are presented from a calculation in which a magnetospheric substrom is modeled.
