Magnetic configuration. Schematic drawings of the magnetic configurations of magnetised and unmagnetised planets. Panel a: magnetised planet with the magnetopause (MP), the polar caps (PC), and the cusps shown in red. The maximum distance between the dayside MP and the planet-sun line, rc, is used in the model (Appendix A). Panel b: unmagnetised planet showing the induced magnetosphere boundary (IMB).
