About this book

Ultra-Low-Frequency (ULF) waves pervade the magnetosphere, a region shaped by the Earth's magnetic fieid and filled with an ionized gas known as plasma. As a mechanism for interaction of particles with fields and as a diagnostic tool for probing the structure of the magnetosphere, ULF waves are a rich medium for research and discovery. With new spacecraft and computer simulations, and ground-based magnetometers and radar networks, we have recently expanded our capacity to analyze ULF waves on a global scale with unprecedented precision.

Magnetospheric ULF Waves: Synthesis and New Directions presents state-of-the-art information on ULF waves, and their effect on space weather, from three vantage points:
- Excitation and propagation
- Interaction with plasma and energetic particles
- Magnetospheric diagnostics

Scientists, researchers, and students working in space physics, magnetospheric physics, atmospheric physics, climatoiogy and aeronomy will find Magnetospheric ULF Waves: Synthesis and New Directions an important resource for current and near-future investigations of the Sun-Earth relationship.
