The initial data from the ATS 1 magnetometer led to the discovery of variations in the magnetic field in the night sector of the synchronous orbit that are characteristic of substorms (Cummings and Coleman, 1968; Cummings et al., 1968). In this paper we will review these previously reported observations and present some results of more recent work.
