The International Magnetospheric Survey (IMS) is an international cooperative venture to study the magnetosphere. It is coordinated by the Scientific Committee for Solar-Terrestrial Physics (Scostep) of the International Council of Scientific Unions (ICSU). The program consists of many separate efforts by scientific groups and individual scientists to study simultaneously the diverse phenomena of the magnetosphere and then compare their results. This procedure has permitted scientists the freedom to pursue their individual programs and has also stimulated creativity, yet at the same time it has provided coordinated observations and studies of individual events from a wide variety of instrumentation.
