Abstract. It is argued that a simple model based on magnetic image arguments suffices to give a convincing insight into both the basic static as well as dynamic properties of the near-Earth’s magnetosphere. Qualitative results can be obtained for the heating due to the compression of the radiation belts. The properties of this simple dynamic model for the solar wind – magnetosphere interaction are discussed and compared to observations. In spite of its simplicity, the model gives convincing results concerning the magnitudes of the near-Earth’s magnetic and electric fields. The database contains ground based results for magnetic field variation in response to shocks in the solar wind. The observations also include satellite data, here from the two Van Allen satellites.

Short summary
An abrupt increase in pressure associated with interplanetary shocks will compress the magnetic field of the Earth. This leads to a sudden impulse which can be observed also in low-latitude magnetometer records. Such events are followed by heavily damped oscillations of approximately 5 min periods. The general features can be explained by a simple model. Our results are supported by satellite and ground based observations. The results are important for space-weather predictions.
