Abstract : Proforce and antiforce initiating anaelectrodiabatic (AED) waves have been the area of concentration for this task. This effort has consisted of review of past observations, development of experimental equipment, development of diagnostic techniques, extension of the Shelton theory, analysis of Johnston Island test data and studies of the effect of magnetic fields on these waves.
