Space Physics and Aeronomy, Ionosphere Dynamics and Applications. Volume 3. Geophysical Monograph Series

  • ID: 5186086
  • Book
  • May 2021
  • John Wiley and Sons Ltd

A comprehensive review of global ionospheric research from the polar caps to equatorial regions

It's more than a century since scientists first identified the ionosphere, the layer of the Earth's upper atmosphere that is ionized by solar and cosmic radiation. Our understanding of this dynamic part of the near-Earth space environment has greatly advanced in recent years thanks to new observational technologies, improved numerical models, and powerful computing capabilities.

Ionosphere Dynamics and Applications provides a comprehensive overview of historic developments, recent advances, and future directions in ionospheric research.

Volume highlights include:

  • Behavior of the ionosphere in different regions from the poles to the equator
  • Distinct characteristics of the high-, mid-, and low-latitude ionosphere
  • Observational results from ground- and space-based instruments
  • Ionospheric impacts on radio signals and satellite operations
  • How earthquakes and tsunamis on Earth cause disturbances in the ionosphere

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.
