Résumé

Many observations of geomagnetic cutoff phenomena and their implications with respect to the dynamics of charged particles in the geomagnetic field are discussed. Störmer's analytic treatment of the motion of charged particles in a dipole field is briefly reviewed, as are the approximate treatments of charged particle motions, first developed by Alfvén, which were to find successful application to the more complex fields now known to exist in the magnetosphere. In conclusion, the present understanding of geomagnetic cutoffs, together with some remaining areas of uncertainty are examined.
