Space weather forecasting is very important to our lives. The most straightforward approach to space weather prediction is to study the whole complex chain of physical processes involved in magnetospheric dynamics and conjugate them in a global model of the evolution of the magnetosphere under the influence of the solar wind. Unfortunately, this is not yet possible due to our poor understanding of the physics of the interaction between the solar wind and the magnetosphere. For this reason, different approaches should be tried.
