Abstract

This paper attempts to summarize many of the more significant results which have been achieved in the study of the earth’s magnetosphere during 1969–1971. It concentrates on studies of the bow shock, magnetosheath, magnetopause, polar cusp, convection-driving electric fields, and the composition of trapped particles of charge greater than one. Whenever possible, particle or field observations are related to the overall question of the magnetosphere: namely, where do the particles come from, where do they go, and what sustains the entire system in equilibrium.
