This COSPAR Colloquium Series deals with the main achievements that were accomplished through the collaborative efforts among ISTP participants; the plasma dynamics of magnetic reconnection in a thin plasma sheet, the action of the solar wind on the plasma population in the plasma sheet and around the magnetotail boundary layer, the relationship between the substrom expansion region and the X-line formation in the magnetotail, and the temporal evolution of the dipolarization from from the near-Earth to the distant tail.

John Lanzendorf Series Volume Editor

John Lanzendorf is a dinosaur art collector by avocation and a well-known hair stylist working from a salon along Chicago's famous Magnificent Mile. His collection and admittedly obsessive interest in dinosaurs are without equal. His active support of the Society of Vertebrate Paleontology has been illustrated by three new Society awards intended for contributions to paleo-art.
