Interplanetary electromagnetic field

I am searching information about the interplanetary magnetic field,e.g, what is its strength? Does it vary with time? (I guess so) Are there statistical model to predict its variation in space and time? ...
At the moment I have not a specific question in my mind, but I am looking for some references to know more. A couple of google searches did not get me much, even the wikipedia page does not say much.
About the level of the reference: keep in mind that I am an electrical engineer, therefore I have (I hope... ;-)) a good background in physics and mathematics.

If you are looking for a book, a used copy of
https://www.amazon.com/dp/0521457149/?tag=pfamazon01-20
Can be found for under $20 delivered (in us). If I recall correctly, there is a chapter on the solar wind and IMF. It is a reasonable book, and your upper division EM class should be sufficient background. I would hope you could find something online if you limit searches to .edu sites, but I'm guessing you already did that.

Good luck.

Edit: here is a table of contents and my review

You mentioned a google search, but not google scholar. This search for interplanetary magnetic field (restricted to 2015 and later) turned up over 16,000 hits. A quick look at some of the titles suggests you will find what you are looking for, though it will likely require significant filtering.
