Abstract

Solar wind measurements on board several spacecraft were used to study the two-points correlations of the solar wind plasma structures. The factors having the most influence on the correlation level are the density variability and IMF cone angle. The characteristic length of large solar wind structures is estimated at 500–1000 R E .
