Resolution No.8 (1983): International program for quantitative investigations in STP

IAGA notes the immense value to the scientific community of international programs for coordinated data acquisition, analysis and interpretation (e.g., IGY, IQSY, IMS, MAP, SMY) and recognising the importance, complexity and dynamic nature of the solar-terrestrial interaction, urges member nations to support and to participate in ICSU planning for international programs during the coming decade designed to acquire and to analyse widespread and well-coordinated data for quantitative investigations of the physical and chemical processes involved in the solar-terrestrial interactions.
