    Earth's Magnetic Field deflat the Solar Storm.
    I would like to know more what is going on between the periods before Solar Storm hits Earth's Magnetic Field and after Solar Storm hits Earth's Magnetic Field?

    Does anyone know any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    For that you would need to learn about electromagnetism and how electric and magnetic fields affect charged particles. There are plenty of books about it, and a great many online articles if you search for electromagnetism and go from there. However the details are fairly math heavy, and while you don't absolutely need to learn the math to understand, it does help.

    Referring to following images, as we learn about electromagnetism on how electric and magnetic fields affect charged particles.
    I would like to know what objects should be observed to measure how Sun's spot affects on Earth? Solar Flare, Solar Wind, Solar Storm ... which one is more important?

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Thanks you very much for any suggestions
