Space physics group is one of four research groups in the UCLA Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics Space Science Center.

The activities of the space physics group are divided into three principal areas of focus: scientific research, scientific programming and space flight instrumentation and is supervised by Professor C. T. Russell. A major part of the activity of the space physics group involves studies of the energy flow from the sun through the solar wind and into the terrestrial and planetary magnetospheres, both induced and intrinsic, and how this energy is dissipated within these magnetospheres. Annual reports of these activities can be found under the heading "Activities" beginning with the year 1994-1995.
