Abstract : The sun has a dominant influence on the terrestrial environment, an environment which affects many phases of direct military interests such as the upper atmosphere, communications, satellite operations, weather, etc. The results obtained add to the interpretation of the solar terrestrial relationships that may add to their predictability. Superposed epoch studies of the daily sunspot numbers (Rz) show a different behavior when selected for daily sums of geomagnetic activity (SKp) of 45 up to 56 than for higher or lower values of SKp.
