Abstract : The purpose of this contract is to study the atmosphere, the ionosphere and the magnetosphere of the Earth under disturbed conditions produced by enhanced solar activity. It also includes, therefore, the study of solar activity in the different regions of the spectrum with special emphasis in the radio domain. Data obtained with ground-based radio telescopes and satellites, together with related information concerning ionospheric parameters, magnetic field intensities, optical solar observations, etc., were used in the different projects under investigation, all of which have the common aim to gain a better understanding of the terrestrial disturbances caused by the active Sun.
