Abstract

In addition to earlier found variations of the Martian magnetotail thickness as a function of the solar wind ram pressure, succeeding analysis of the magnetotail boundary crossings by Phobos 2 orbiter revealed modulation of magnetopause positions by planetary crustal magnetization. It was shown that magnetic anomalies mostly influence the magnetotail thickness when they are approaching the terminator region due to planetary rotation. The areographic position of the equatorial regions of Mars, which efficiently increase planetary magnetotail thickness, corresponds to strongly magnetized regions recently mapped by the Mars Global Surveyor. Local enhancement of the magnetotail thickness due to non-uniform crustal magnetization can be as high as 500-1000 km.
