Abstract : Correlations of interplanetary conditions at two interplanetary points are examined. Indirect comparisons are made between the observational data obtained by the Venus-bound space probe, Pioneer 12, and the Earth-bound satellite, IMP 8. The correspondence between the data points in the two sets of data is established by the assumption that solar wind streams corotate with the Sun. The streaming plasma in each stream tube is assumed to have a stationary profile under the effects of thermal conduction and solar gravitation. (Author)
