Abstract : This report summarizes the recent activities and results of a study seeking to discover and quantify the relationship between solar wind parameters, magnetosheath turbulence, and daytime geomagnetic pulsations. The most significant achievement has been a major advance in data processing and computational analysis leading to the first observations and measurements of magnetospheric resonance thickness, wave transfer across the magnetopause, and wave structure in the outer magnetosheath.
