Summary

The relation of IMP-7 and IMP-8 data to the International Magnetospheric Study is discussed. Relevant spacecraft and experiment characteristics, and the nature and accessibility of data from each experiment, are identified. Finally the potential value of IMP data in IMS studies is illustrated with a few citations from the IMP Bibliography and with figures from a recent multiple-data-set magnetotail plasma sheet study.
