Abstract : An analysis of two magnetospheric problems comprises the work of the report. The first pertains to an analysis of hourly averaged Imp-C data in the tail with regards to thickness and motion and magnetic variations. The second deals with the uncoupling of parallel and perpendicular particle motion in a neutral sheet. (Author)
