Scientific Committee on Solar-Terrestrial Physics (SCOSTEP)

SCOSTEP runs international interdisciplinary scientific programs and promotes solar-terrestrial physics research by providing the necessary scientific framework for international collaboration and dissemination of the derived scientific knowledge in collaboration with other ISC bodies.

SCOSTEP was originally established as an Inter-Union Commission following a Resolution adopted at the 11th General Assembly of ICSU in Bombay in January 1966. It was modified by the 14th General Assembly of ICSU in Helsinki in 1972 to a Special Committee, and by the 17th General Assembly in 1978 to a Scientific Committee.
