About this book

The articles contained in this book describe the latest research results in solar wind-magnetosphere interaction, magnetospheric substorms, magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, transport phenomena in the plasma sheet, wave and particle dynamics in the ring current and radiation belts, and extra-terrestrial magnetospheric systems. The book also highlights innovative methods and techniques for the study of geospace.


Contents

Magnetopause and magnetosheath processes: reconnection, diffusion and boundary dynamics.- Advances in substorm research from multi-point observations in the magnetosphere.- Magnetosphere-ionosphere interactions and auroral processes.- New perspectives of the magnetosphere-ionosphere system from global models, synoptic observations, and data assimilation.- The plasma sheet -- ionosphere, a coupled system: Sinks, sources, transport and the role of region-2 currents.- Techniques and instrumentation in space plasma physics.- Wave and particle dynamics in the ring current and radiation belts/geomagnetic storms.- Other magnetospheric worlds.- Conjugate and interhemispheric studies of polar geophysical phenomena: Results of IPY/IHY.- ULF waves as magnetospheric probes
