An Introduction to Space Weather
The Sun, which has tremendous influence on Earth’s space environment, releases vast amounts of energy in the form of electromagnetic and particle radiation that can damage or destroy satellite, navigation, communication and Space weather is an emerging field of space science focused on understanding societal and technological impacts of the solar-terrestrial relationship.
The Sun, which has tremendous influence on Earth’s space environment, releases vast amounts of energy in the form of electromagnetic and particle radiation that can damage or destroy satellite, navigation, communication and power distribution systems. This textbook introduces the relationship between the Sun and Earth, and shows how it impacts our technological society. One of the first undergraduate textbooks on space weather aimed at non-science majors, it uses the practical aspects of space weather to introduce space physics and give students an understanding of the Sun-Earth relationship.
Definitions of important terms are given throughout the text.
Key concepts, supplements, and review questions are given at the end of each chapter to help students understand the materials covered. This textbook is ideal for introductory space physics courses.

Lists with This Book. This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Dec 06, Walter Underwood rated it it was amazing.
Exactly what I needed to learn how the sun affects the ionosphere. I understood the structure of the ionosphere and how it reflects radio waves, but I didn’t understand enough about how the ionosphere is affected by changes in the sun–the sunspot cycle, coronal mass wsather, etc.

This is fascinating stuff and still a new field, with more experimental data every day. I’m pretty sure that this book is still accurate inbut it might need a revision by I need moldwln learn more detail a Exactly what I needed to learn how the sun affects the ionosphere. I need to learn more detail about the ionosphere and radio, for example, why do the E and F layers reflect radio introdiction while the D layer absorbs them.
But that is outside the scope of this book. Conceptual physics knowledge is enough to understand the material.
I think the Bohr model of the atom and electromagnetics are college physics subjects, but everything else is high school physics. Equations are occasionally included as examples, but they aren’t necessary to understand the chapters.
