9780521485357: The Solar Corona

Observations from the ground and space have advanced our knowledge of the solar corona dramatically over the past three decades. This timely volume presents a lucid and synthesized review of the latest observations of the solar corona and discusses how these observations have advanced and shaped our understanding of coronal physics. In the process, the authors introduce a wide variety of exciting physics, including dynamo theory and radiative transfer. They also demonstrate how the transient effects of the solar cycle effect "space weather." This book provides a much-needed introduction to coronal physics for advanced students and researchers.
