Abstract: The ICE spacecraft observed in the vicinity of Comet Giacobini-Zinner electrostatic noise with burstlike features seemingly modulated by the relative orientation of the interplanetary magnetic field and the solar wind velocity. The adequacy of ion acousticlike instabilities stimulated by photoelectron or newborn ion beams to the interpretation of the electrostatic bursts is discussed. It is concluded that the mode fed by the photoelectrons exhibits characteristics compatible with the observations.
