Comparison of the times of occurrence of a newly discovered type of disturbance in the interplanetary magnetic field at 0.72 astronomical unit with the passage of the small Venus-crossing asteroid, 2201 Oljato, reveals a possible association, but the source of these disturbances appears to be associated with outgassing material in the Oljato orbit some distance behind the asteroid and not with the asteroid itself. This suggested association can account for one quarter of the total number of… 
Interplanetary magnetic field enhancements: Further evidence for an association with Asteroid 2201 Oljato
In 1980 and 1983 the asteroid 2201 Oljato passed inside the orbit of Venus, respectively 65 and 21 days prior to the passage of Venus, apparently causing disturbances in the interplanetary magnetic
Interplanetary Field Enhancements: Observations from 0.3 AU to 1 AU
Interplanetary Field Enhancements are rare but very distinct increases in the magnetic field strength, reaching a nearly symmetric cusp‐shaped peak. These increases are usually accompanied by a thin
A high‐latitude interplanetary magnetic field enhancement at Ulysses
[1] An analysis is presented of data returned from the Ulysses spacecraft on 28 July 2000, when it encountered a highly unusual event in the high-latitude solar wind. The event is identified as a
Interplanetary field enhancements travel at the solar wind speed
Interplanetary Field Enhancements (IFEs) are cusp‐shaped increases and decreases in the interplanetary field, accompanied by a thin current sheet. They can last many hours and even the strongest have
Possible Distortion of the Interplanetary Magnetic Field by the Dust Trail of Comet 122P/de Vico
Interplanetary field enhancements are unexplained localized increases in the heliospheric magnetic field magnitude. Four such enhancements, detected by the Pioneer Venus Orbiter and Ulysses


An unusual interplanetary event: encounter with a comet?
The interplanetary magnetic field near the ecliptic plane is characterized both by its variability in direction and by its constancy of magnitude. Exceptions to this constancy are depressions in
Evaluation of the Apollo Asteroids as Sources of Stone Meteorites
Calculation of the secular perturbations of the earth-crossing (Apollo) asteroids shows that the node of one body, 1948 EA, seldom, if ever, crosses the earth's orbit and probably should not be

Carbon and oxygen production rates for Comet Kohoutek (1973 XII).
Comas of Comet Kohoutek in the resonance lines of atomic oxygen (1304 A) and atomic carbon (1657 A) were detected with a rocket-borne objective spectrograph on 1974 January 8 (R=0.43 AU). The
Carbon production in comet West 1975n.
Ultraviolet spectra of comet West at moderate resolution in the wavelength range 1200--3200 A were obtained with scanning spectrophotometers aboard an Aerobee 200 rocket launched 1976 March 5.49. The
