Abstract : The work carried under this contract covers the routine reduction and analysis of data obtained from the Spherical Electrostatic experiments on board the OGO 1 and 3, INJUN 5 and ISIS-1 satellites. The data analysed were examined and theoretical interpretations were made thereby enabling an understanding of the physical processes operating in the magnetospheric region of space. (Author)
