Abstract : The document consists of five scientific reports. In the first report, computer programs are described which simulate ionospheric currents responsible for quiet-day ground magnetic variations at middle and equatorial geomagnetic latitudes. The program enables us to deduce the large-scale electrostatic fields generated by dynamo actions in the ionosphere. The second report describes a computer program for mapping of the ground magnetic potential pattern on any given day, either quiet or disturbed. The other reports are reprints of articles which have been either fully or partially supported by this contract. (Author)
