A new class of effects associated with charged particles undergound constrained motion near abrupt magnetic boundaries were identified. Magnetic discontinuities abrupt compared to a particle gyroradius were easily produced in the laboratory. The complexity of the motion of boundary particles was constrained by an unusual wetting effect.
