9780123978868: The Earth?s Electric Field: Sources from Sun to Mud

The Earth’s Electric Field provides you with an integrated and comprehensive picture of the generation of the terrestrial electric fields, their dynamics and how they couple/propagate through the medium. The Earth’s Electric Field provides basic principles of terrestrial electric field related topics, but also a critical summary of electric field related observations and their significance to the various related phenomena in the atmosphere. For the first time, Kelley brings together information on this topic in a coherent way, making it easy to gain a broad overview of the critical processes in an efficient way. If you conduct research in atmospheric science, physics, atmospheric chemistry, space plasma physics, and solar terrestrial physics, you will find this book to be essential reading.

  • The only book on the physics of terrestrial electric fields and their generation mechanisms, propagation and dynamics–making it essential reading for scientists conducting research in upper atmospheric, ionospheric, magnetospheric and space weather
  • Covers the processes related to electric field generation and electric field coupling in the upper atmosphere along with providing new insights about electric fields generated by sources from sun to mud
  • Focuses on real-world implications?covering topics such as space weather, earthquakes, the effect on power grids, and the effect on GPS and communication devices

From the Back Cover:

The Earth’s Electric Field is the first book dedicated to the physics of electric fields in the atmosphere and near-space regions of the earth and their generation mechanisms, propagation, and dynamics. Kelley offers a systematic approach to describing the earth’s electric field by providing basic principles of terrestrial electric field-related topics as well as critical summaries of electric-field observations and their significance to the various related phenomena in the atmosphere. The Earth’s Electric Field is essential reading for scientists conducting research in upper atmospheric, ionospheric, magnetospheric, and space weather.

Key features

  • Covers the processes related to electric field generation and electric field downward coupling from the solar wind to the upper atmosphere and from the ground/troposphere upward
  • Focuses on real-world implications, covering topics such as space weather, earthquakes, aurora, the effect on power grids, and the effect on GPS and communication devices
  • Provides new insights about electric fields generated by sources from sun to mud

Also available: The Earth’s Ionosphere, Volume 96, Second Edition: Plasma Physics and Electrodynamics, 2009, Michael C. Kelley, 576 pages, 978-0120884254. A companion website as well as problem sets and solutions are available for instructors online at Store.Elsevier.com.

Review:

"It presents a comprehensive introduction to the complex subject of the electrical interaction between the earth and its surrounding space environment and should serve as a good introduction to this subject for advanced geophysics undergraduates or beginning graduate students."--The Leading Edge, June 2014
