The second scientific campaign planned for the interagency investigation of solar-terrestrial physics is entitled Boundaries in Collisionless Plasma. This first stage of the campaign began in mid 1997 using operative IACG spacecraft (Geotail, Wind, Interball, Polar). With the launch of the ESA Cluster spacecraft in 2001 the second stage of the campaign will begin.

|We wish to thank Joel Fedder of George Mason University, Steve Slinker of the Naval Research Laboratory, and John Lyon of Dartmouth University who provided the magnetospheric MHD simulation used as logos for the campaign. The simulations show the mass density of plasma and selected magnetic field lines in the noon-midnight meridian under northward, eastward, and southward IMF conditions.|
