Abstract : Investigation of data on strong and very strong magnetic storms of at least two days duration, recorded by the Murmansk Division of the Institute of Terrestrial Magnestism, Ionosphere, and Radio Wave Propagation of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR during the period 1 January 1955 to 31 July 1959, has shown that there is a tendency of magnetic storms to recur at approximately equal periods of time. The most frequently observed periods were: 14 plus or minus 1, 26 plus or minus 1, 29 plus or minus 1 and 56 plus or minus 1 days. Cyclogenesis developed more actively from the second day after the commencement of the magnetic storm to the second day after its termination, and the development of low cyclones into high-lvevel cyclones was accelerated. At the time of magnetic storms during the cold season, there is a tendency for cyclonic activity to intensify from Iceland toward the Barents Sea. In the warm season, during magnetic storms, there is a tendency for the temperature to rise in this same region. The article includes an analysis of processes during two magnetic storms. (Author)
