This book provides a comprehensive overview of all aspects of the physics of the upper atmosphere within the polar regions. Beginning with a discussion of solar radiation and the solar wind, the author describes how changes in the interplanetary magnetic field affect the Earth's magnetosphere, the inter-relationship between near-space and the upper atmosphere, currents in the ionosphere, and the basic elements of the auroral process. Contains a detailed discussion of the basic atmospheric physics involved and features coverage of ozone and other minor constituents in the upper atmosphere. The section on pollution problems highlights the enormous topicality and current importance of upper polar atmosphere studies.From the Back Cover:
This is the only extended textbook that covers in particular the physics of the upper polar atmosphere where the polar lights demonstrates the end product of a process taking place at extremely high latitudes between the solar wind and the upper polar atmosphere.
A textboook that meets the modern requriement for reading in order to obtain a master of science or a Dr. of science degree in upper polar atmosphere physics or the interaction between the soalr wind and the Earth's atmosphere
