About This Book

An overview of current knowledge and future research directions in magnetospheric physics

In the six decades since the term 'magnetosphere' was first introduced, much has been theorized and discovered about the magnetized space surrounding each of the bodies in our solar system. Each magnetosphere is unique yet behaves according to universal physical processes.

Magnetospheres in the Solar System brings together contributions from experimentalists, theoreticians, and numerical modelers to present an overview of diverse magnetospheres, from the mini-magnetospheres of Mercury to the giant planetary magnetospheres of Jupiter and Saturn.

Volume highlights include:

  • Concise history of magnetospheres, basic principles, and equations
  • Overview of the fundamental processes that govern magnetospheric physics
  • Tools and techniques used to investigate magnetospheric processes
  • Special focus on Earth's magnetosphere and its dynamics
  • Coverage of planetary magnetic fields and magnetospheres throughout the solar system
  • Identification of future research directions in magnetospheric physics

The American Geophysical Union promotes discovery in Earth and space science for the benefit of humanity. Its publications disseminate scientific knowledge and provide resources for researchers, students, and professionals.
