Abstract:

Solar activity in a region at Carrington Longitude 45 deg was associated with several interplanetary and terrestrial disturbances that occurred from 20 March to 5 May 1976. These events, which included a ground-level solar cosmic ray increase, were relatively unusual in that they occurred during solar minimum. At the requests of the SCOSTEP project on the Study of Travelling Interplanetary Phenomena, this period was designated as a Retrospective World Interval resulting in a special publication of solar-terrestrial physics data in a UAG report. Since this project was international in scope and one in which many cosmic ray physicists participated, a summary of the interesting events of this period is presented. Author
