                         nT) and on February 12th 2000 (Dst peak = -131 nT) were caused by 
                         different interplanetary structures. The April 1999 event was 
                         caused by a south-north fast magnetic cloud, which drove an 
                         interplanetary shock detected at 1 astronomical unit (UA) at 10:30 
                         UT on April 16th 1999. This interplanetary shock had Alfvenic Mach 
                         number of about 2.5. The magnetic cloud arrived at UA around 23:00 
                         UT on April 16th and ended around 19:00 UT on April 17th. The 
                         southward component of the interplanetary magnetic field remained 
                         above -10 nT for 5 hours, with peak value of -14 nT. The February 
                         2000 event was caused by the interaction of two interplanetary 
                         remnants of coronal mass ejections. Two interplanetary shocks were 
                         detected on February 11th 2000 at 02:00 and at 23:00 UT. These 
                         shocks had Alfvenic Mach numbers of about 2.0 and 2.8, 
                         respectively, and were driven by interplanetary ejecta. The first 
                         interplanetary ejecta arrived at 1 UA around 16:00 UT on February 
                         11th. However, it was engulfed by the second one around 20:00 UT 
                         on the same day, creating an intense and highly turbulent 
                         southward magnetic field, which remained above -10 nT for 3 hours, 
                         with peak value of -16 nT. In this paper the interplanetary 
                         aspects of these two solar-terrestrial connection events are 
                         analyzed and compared. Plasma and magnetic field data obtained 
                         from sensors on board ACE spacecraft orbiting L1 point are used.",
