Overview

Written by a researcher at the forefront of the field, this first comprehensive account of magnetoseismology conveys the physics behind these movements and waves, and explains how to detect and investigate them.
Along the way, it describes the principles as applied to remote sensing of near-Earth space and related remote sensing techniques, while also comparing and intercalibrating magnetoseismology with other techniques. The example applications include advanced data analysis techniques that may find wider used in areas ranging from geophysics to medical imaging, and remote sensing using radar systems that are of relevance to defense surveillance systems. As a result, the book not only reviews the status quo, but also anticipates new developments.
With many figures and illustrations, some in full color, plus additional computational codes for analysis and evaluation.
Aimed at graduate readers, the text assumes knowledge of electromagnetism and physical processes at degree level, but introductory chapters will provide an overview of the relevant plasma physics and magnetospheric physics. The book will thus be of interest to entry-level and established researchers in physics of the Earth's magnetosphere and ionosphere, as well as to students, academics and scientifically literate laypersons with an interest in understanding space weather processes and how these relate to the dynamic behavior of near-Earth space.

Meet the Author

Frederick Menk obtained his PhD in space physics in 1984. His research interests focus on propagation of ultra-low frequency plasma waves through the magnetosphere and ionosphere, related instrumentation, and improving radiation treatment of cancers. He has chaired the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy working group on ULF waves, served on many international and national committees and review panels, convened several international symposia, and was project manager for the NewMag magnetometer payload on the FedSat spacecraft. He has been Deputy Dean of a large faculty at the University of Newcastle, where he is currently Professor of Physics

Colin Waters obtained his PhD in space physics in 1993. He has published research on a number of space physics topics including computer simulations and experimental studies of ULF wave propagation in the magnetosphere and ionosphere, energy exchange between the magnetosphere and the ionosphere by auroral currents and ULF wave effects on technology such as Doppler clutter in over-the-horizon radar systems, geomagnetic induced currents in electricity supply networks and gas pipelines. He has convened several International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy symposia, served on various national and international space science related committees and is an associate editor for Journal Geophysical Research-Space Physics.
