The Solar-Terrestrial Environment. John Keith Hargreaves; Online ISBN: Author: John Keith Hargreaves. The book begins with three introductory chapters that provide some basic physics and explain the principles of physical investigation. The principal material contained in the main part of the book covers the neutral and ionized upper atmosphere, the magnetosphere, and structures, dynamics, disturbances, and irregularities. The concluding chapter deals with technological applications. "The book is a solid, comprehensive text providing a full overview of solar-terrestrial science, pitched at the graduate student level. The book provides an excellent summary of the underlying physics controlling Sun-Earth connections, and it certainly merits a place on the bookshelf of an academic working in the field. is worthwhile Author: Yohsuke Kamide. As a star in the universe, the Sun is constantly releas- cover a wide range of time and spatial scales, making?? ing energy into space, as much as?.??? erg/s.

The Earth's ionosphere is the ionized portion of the upper atmosphere at an altitudinal range from ~ 60 to thousands of kilometers that is central to our solar-terrestrial environment (Kamide and.

The Handbook of the Solar-Terrestrial Environment is a unique compendium. Recognized international leaders in their field contribute chapters on basic topics of solar physics, space plasmas and the Earth's magnetosphere, and on applied topics like the aurora, magnetospheric storms, space weather, space climatology and planetary science. From the reviews:"The book is a solid, comprehensive text providing a full overview of solar-terrestrial science, pitched at the graduate student level. The book provides an excellent summary of the underlying physics controlling Sun-Earth connections, and it certainly merits a place on the bookshelf of an academic working in the field.

However, this text, Handbook of the Solar-Terrestrial Environment, is not that book. As those of us lucky enough to be involved in the field know, solar system physics (alternately known as solar-terrestrial physics or solar-planetary physics—call it what you will) is a highly active, exciting, and rapidly changing area of : Andy Breen. Such a book should include the gamut of recent results and outstanding questions. However, this text, Handbook of the Solar-Terrestrial Environment, is not that book.
