Abstract

Experimental data of Prognoz, Prognoz-2 and HEOS-2 on interplanetary plasma and magnetosheath plasma in the period of unusual solar activity in August 1972 are considered. All measurements showed the extremal plasma properties with strong variations. Attempt is made to identify the structure according to near-Earth observations. The positions of the magnetopause and bow shock suffered significant variations during this time interval.
