About this book


This book is a state-of-the-art review on the physics of space weather and on space weather impacts on human technology, including manned spaceflight. With contributions from a team of international experts, this comprehensive work covers all aspects of space weather physical processes, and all known aspects of space hazards from humans, both in space and on Earth.

Space Weather - Physics and Effects

  • provides the first comprehensive, scientific background of space storms caused by the sun and its impact on geospace
  • focuses on weather issues that have become vital for the development of nationwide technological infrastructures
  • explains magnetic storms on Earth, including the effects  of EUV radiation on the atmosphere
  • is an invaluable aid in establishing real-time weather forecasts
  • details the threat that solar effects might have on modern telecommunication systems, including national power grid systems, aircraft and manned spaceflight.
