[1] New results from PRL in India

Dear Dr. Maeda,

Please find attached a short write up for publication in the ISWI Newsletter. Prof. Gopalswamy has requested me to send you the PDF file of the write up. The results described have just been accepted for publication in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

The result is a new finding by a group of researchers at the Physical Research Laboratory, Ahmedabad, India on the geo-effectiveness of solar wind flows caused by co-rotating interaction regions. The lead author, Diptiranjan Rout, is a Graduate Sutudent at PRL, working towards his PhD.

Thanks and Best Wishes Janardhan
