Using observations of solar wind plasma and magnetic field parameters and additional data (e.g., geomagnetic indicies, energetic particle and cosmic ray observations), we have classified the near-Earth solar wind during 1963 to 2011 into three basic flow types: high-speed streams associatedwith coronal holes at the Sun, slow, inter-stream flows, and transient ("CME-related") flows. We discuss the cycle-to-cycle variations in solar wind parameters and structures, and geomagnetic activity, over this period, encompassingmore than four solar cycles.
