Resolution No.11 (1989): Promotion of the IEEY

IAGA, recognising the importance of the Equatorial electrojet in geomagnetism, upper atmosphere dynamics and ionospheric processes, noting the fact that the equatorial electrojet encompasses geographic regions of many developing countries, designates the period September 1991-March 1993 as the International Equatorial Electrojet Year (IEEY), during which intensive and coordinated campaigns on the equatorial electrojet and related aeronomic phenomena should be conducted using a variety of observational techniques at low latitudes, and urges all concerned scientific communities to participate actively in this programme.
