Magnetic field (earth)

The magnetic region surrounding earth. It is generated by the dipolar characteristic of earth's core whereby earth itself acts as a great spherical magnet with poles near, but not exactly at, the North and South poles.
This category is also used for geomagnetic field, geomagnetics, geomagnetism, magnetic field, and magnetosphere.
