Solar Wind Sources of Magnetospheric Ultra-Low-Frequency Waves

Solar Wind Sources of Magnetospheric Ultra-Low-Frequency Waves

M. J. Engebretson (Editor), Kazue Takahashi (Editor), M. Scholer (Editor)

ISBN: 978-1-118-66394-3 April 2013 American Geophysical Union 424 Pages



Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 81.

This volume provides a comprehensive overview of externally generated ULF waves and transients in the Earth's space environment, including practically all the latest advances as of the date of writing. Tutorials are included to give a complete introduction to time?]dependent phenomena in the magnetosphere in the ULF frequency range. The material may therefore be used by the interested reader as a starting point for getting involved in this research field, as an overview of the research in progress, and/or as a convenient reference for advanced background knowledge.
