A Corotating interplay area (CIR) is the results of the interplay of quick sun wind with slower sun wind forward. CIRs have a really huge 3-dimensional ex­ tent and are the dominant large-scale constitution within the heliosphere at the declining and minimal section of the sunlight task cycle. till lately, notwithstanding, CIRs may purely be saw on the subject of the ecliptic aircraft, and their three-d constitution used to be accordingly now not noticeable to observers and theoreticians alike. Ulysses was once the 1st spacecraft permitting direct exploration of the 3rd dimen­ sion of the heliosphere. because 1992, whilst it has entered a polar orbit that takes it zero as much as eighty range, the spacecraft's functionality has been wonderful and the venture has supplied first-class facts from a wonderfully matched set of tools. probably the main interesting remark in the course of Ulysses' first passage in the direction of the south pole of the sunlight was once a robust and durable CIR whose vigorous particle results have been saw as much as without warning excessive latitudes. those observations, documented in a few courses, prompted huge new theoretical work.
