One basic problem in the physical interpretation of satellite data is the ambiguity of temporal and spatial effects. Moreover, there is quite a lot of uncertainty as to how waves and particles propagate from the outer to the inner magnetosphere and as to how these phenomena are displayed in the ionosphere. Simultaneous observations at typical satellite altitudes up to geosynchronous orbits and by rocket-borne instruments provide adequate means of tackling these problems. Several rocket campaigns are planned which are more or less ‘tied’ to observations made by the GEOS satellite.
