About this book

This book shows the state of the art in Europe on a very new discipline, Space Weather. This discipline lies at the edge between science and industry. This book reflects such a position with theoretic papers and applicative papers as well. It is divided into five chapters. Each chapter starts with a short introduction, which shows the coherence of a given domain. Then, four to five contributions written by the best specialists in Europe give detailed hints of a hot topic in space weather.

From the reading of this book, it becomes evident that space weather is a living discipline, full of promises and already full of amazing realizations. The strength of Europe is clear through the book, but it is also clear that this discipline is worldwide.

Biography

Myself, the editor of the book, I am the chair of the largest project on space weather, gathering 26 countries. I am a permanent researcher at CNRS -- Laboratoire de Planetologie de Grenoble. I study space weather at Earth, but also at other planets (Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Titan). I published more than 50 scientific papers on these topics. This book is my tenth book. I published 9 books on space, space weather, and ! philosophy in French. One of them on space weather has been translated and published in December 2005 by Springer (Space weather, environment and societies, Jean Lilensten et J. Bornarel).

Media reviews

From the reviews: "This is a most interesting and valuable book for the interdisciplinary community working collaboratively on space weather topics, both on research and applications, in Europe. ! All in all, this is a very useful compilation of the present state of knowledge on the science and applications of space weather. It is a fine resource for those entering the field or those already active in it. It should be on the shelves of all libraries which cover geophysics, in the widest sense of that world" (M. J. Rycroft, Surveys in Geophysics, Vol. 28, 2007)
