Størmer’s Accomplishments: In Retrospect
During a long lifetime in research Carl Størmer devoted himself to resolving riddles implicit in auroral physics. In doing so he advanced theoretical concepts and made experimental contributions to space research of lasting importance. This chapter comments summarily on his theoretical and experimental auroral work and how contemporary scientists viewed him (Fig. 10.1).
