Short summary
The Earth's magnetic field creates a magnetic bulk all around it called the magnetosphere. This bulk a priori protects us from the particles coming from the sun but sometimes undergoes violent events such as interplanetary coronal mass ejections. These cause the entry of particles into the magnetosphere, which can be harmful for satellites. In this paper, we performed a statistical study to characterize the interplanetary coronal mass ejections and their ability to disturb the magnetosphere.
