Multi-Wavelength Investigations of Solar Activity (IAU S223) / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Cambridge University Press
These Proceedings present the most recent results from the highly successful international solar space missions (SOHO, CORONAS-F, TRACE, RHESSI, YOHKOH) and ground observatories around the Earth, reported at the IAU Symposium 223 held in St. Petersburg, Russia, June 14-19, 2004. These include discussions of the current theories of solar dynamics and activity, new constraints provided by the multi-wavelength observations of the Sun from the interior to the heliosphere, as well as discussions of future coordinated plans and efforts of multi-wavelength investigations of the Sun. The Proceedings contain the material of seven plenary sessions and three round-table discussions

This book covers recent advances in observations of the sun, from ground based and space observatories. The solar phenomena multi-wavelength investigations are of various spatial and temporal scales. Understanding the mechanisms of solar activity is through an understanding of links in the solar process. This book includes the most recent results of the international solar space missions. This volume covers all aspects of solar activity studies. Importantly a thorough understanding of solar activity will enhance understanding of effects on earth. Solar time is also coordinated with earth's history and what may be expected in the future. SOHO, Joint Observing Programs contribute to the quality of life for all. The studies are detailed, cross referencing could be interesting. I recommend this volume as an intensive technical study, with direction to interest in college courses. I own a copy of this book.
