Summary

As a major enterprise of Japanese IMS, which was conducted in 1976–1978, the coordinated observations for the polar disturbances were carried out around Syowa Station, Antarctica. The observations consisted of the following four items: 1) Ground–based network observations, 2) Syowa–GEOS–Iceland conjugate experiments, 3) Satellite data acquisition and 4) Rocket and balloon experiments. The results of some of the above observations are summarized and presented.
