Today, earthquake seismology is a quantitative science involving a massive
interplay between large quantities of high-quality data, detailed models of
earthquake source mechanisms, and increasingly realistic models of the earth's
The closest approach of the bow shock to the center of the Earth under typical
solar wind conditions is about 92,000 km or about 14.5 Earth radii. Under similar
conditions the boundary of the magnetosphere (i.e., the magnetopause) lies at ...
