Ground Based Solar Studies

NSSDCA ID: 1978-079A-13

Mission Name: ISEE 3
Principal Investigator:Prof. John M. Wilcox


This experiment consisted of the measurement of large-scale solar magnetic and velocity fields with the Stanford ground-based solar telescope, and the comparison of these measurements with measurements of the interplanetary magnetic field and solar wind made by other experiments on this spacecraft. The purpose of the experiment was to study the large-scale structure of the solar magnetic field and its extension into interplanetary space by the solar wind.
