The size of the Magnetosphere is calculated during the period 1996-2011. It is discovered that the magnetopause distance D is quantized for D ≥ 8 RE. The magnetic levels are narrow towards the Earth but widely spaced outwards. This quantization disappears in the lower magnetosphere below 7 RE. Once the magnetopause is compressed to 8 -7 RE, multi doors get open which we call the Geomagnetic doors, and the solar wind is injected into the inner magnetosphere then to the ionosphere inducing SID and to the troposphere where it can cause flash floods and seeds of hurricanes
