About this book

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. ! is worthwhile for working solar-terrestrial physicists ! . If you are an ambitious graduate student and have decided you want to make a career in solar-terrestrial physics, then you might consider it ! ." (Andy Breen, EOS, Vol. 90 (11), March, 2009)
