Short summary
This paper concerns the question of whether the maximum Earth ring current strength exists and at which moment the ring current can start to break up, thus making a new mechanism of the ring current decrease during the magnetic storm. We study this effect using the Stormer theory of particle motion. After transition of critical strength, Stormer's inner trapping region opens up and the ring current charged particles get the opportunity to leave it, thus decreasing the current strength.
