About this book

Recurrent Magnetic Storms reviews our current understanding of magnetic storms and geomagnetic activity that occur during the declining and the minimum phases of the solar (sunspot) cycle. From discussion of solar and interplanetary phenomena that affect the magnetosphere, ionosphere and atmosphere, with special focus on how underlying processes interact, readers will gain advanced perspectives on continuing research and new research needs.

Recurrent Magnetic Storms: Corotating Solar Wind Streams sets the stage for evolving future explanations of fundamental response of the interplanetary and global systems to the sun. Scientists, researchers, and students who work in Magnetospheric Physics, Aeronomy, Solar and Interplanetary Physics, and who have specific interest in Space Weather phenomena, will find Recurrent Magnetic Storms an important resource.
