Abstract: The magnetosphere is a three-dimensional cavity formed by the interaction of solar wind with the terrestrial geomagnetic field. The dayside and nightside of this cavity are known to display interesting and important phenomena. A well organized international magnetospheric study programme using multiple spacecrafts and co-ordinated ground-based experiments was launched and carried out during 1976-79. Brief descriptions of various experiments aboard different satellites are given. The magnetospheric features as revealed by these measurements are described and discussed. The variational features of magnetospheric phenomena give rise to a coupling that results into simultaneous spatial and temporal variations in certain ionospheric and ground-based parameters. Detailed and up-to-date features of magnetospheric phenomena as accomplished by the IMS mission are reviewed.
