Download Convection and Substorms: Paradigms of Magnetospheric by Charles F. Kennel PDF

By Charles F. Kennel

The magnetosphere is the zone the place cosmic rays and the sun wind have interaction with the Earth's magnetic box, growing such phenomena because the northern lighting and different aurorae. The configuration and dynamics of the magnetosphere are of curiosity to planetary physicists, geophysicists, plasma astrophysicists, and to scientists making plans house missions. The move of sunlight wind plasma within the magnetosphere and substorms have lengthy been used because the precept paradigms for learning this very important quarter. Charles F. Kennel, a number one scientist within the box, the following provides a synthesis of the convection and substorm literatures, and an research of convection and substorm interactions; he additionally means that the at the moment authorised regular reconnection version might be advantageously changed by way of a version of a number of tail reconnection occasions, during which many together interdependent reconnections happen. Written in an obtainable, non-mathematical type, this ebook introduces the reader to the fascinating discoveries during this fast-growing box.
