Abstract
We examine possible interplanetary mechanisms for the creation of the large st magnetic storms at the Earth. We consider the effects of interplanetary shock events on magnetic cloud and sheath plasma. We also examine the effec ts of a combination of a long-duration southward sheath magnetic field, fol lowed by a magnetic cloud B-S event. Examination of profiles of the most in tense storms from 1957 to the present indicate that the latter (double IMF B-Z events) is an important cause of superintense D-ST events.
