A model of the magnetosheath structure proposed in a recent paper from the authors is extended to estimate the magnetopause stand-o distance from solar wind data. For this purpose, the relationship of the magnetopause location to the magnetosheath and solar wind parameters is studied. It is shown that magnetopause erosion may be explained in terms of the magnetosheath magnetic ®eld penetration into the magnetosphere. The coecient of penetration (the ratio of the magnetospheric magnetic ®elddoi:10.1007/s00585-998-0388-z fatcat:uyq7s2scqjdknophyoxg325ynu
