Abstract : During the last year the following results were obtained. The response of a model plasma to a triggering wave was calculated and it was found that there is a phase memory effect. Progress in the location of whistler ducts has been very encouraging. Completion of the direction finding technique initiated during this period of research should add an important new tool for the general study of magnetospheric electromagnetic phenomena. Possible practical applications of this work include diagnostics of the magnetosphere and problems involving communication and navigation aids at very low frequencies.
