All magnetized planets in our solar system (Mercury, Earth,Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) interact strongly with thesolar wind and possess well developed magnetotails. It is not onlythe strongly magnetized planets that have magnetotails. Mars andVenus have no global intrinsic magnetic field, yet they possessinduced magnetotails. Comets have magnetotails that are formed bythe draping of the interplanetary magnetic field. In the case ofplanetary  satellites (moons), the magnetotail refers to thewake region behind the satellite in the flow of either the solarwind or the magnetosphere of its parent planet. The largestmagnetotail of all in our solar  system  is  the heliotail,  the  “magnetotail” of the heliosphere. The variety of solar wind conditions,planetary rotation rates, ionospheric conductivity, and physicaldimensions provide an outstanding opportunity to extend ourunderstanding of the influence of these factors on magnetotailprocesses and structures.

 Volume highlights include:

  •  Discussion on why a magnetotail is a fundamental problemof magnetospheric physics
  • Unique collection of tutorials on a large range of magnetotailsin our solar system
  • In-depth reviews comparing magnetotail processes at Earth withother magnetotail structures found throughout the heliosphere

Collectively, Magnetotails in the Solar System bringstogether for the first time in one book a collection of tutorialsand current developments addressing different types ofmagnetotails. As a result, this book should appeal to a broadcommunity of space scientists, and it should also be of interest toastronomers who are looking at tail-like structures beyond oursolar system.

From the Back Cover:

All magnetized planets in our solar system (Mercury, Earth,Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune) interact strongly with thesolar wind and possess well developed magnetotails. However, Marsand Venus have no global intrinsic magnetic field, yet they possessinduced magnetotails. Comets have a magnetotail that is formed bythe draping of the interplanetary magnetic field. In the case ofplanetary satellites (moons), the magnetotail refers to the wakeregion behind the satellite in the flow of either the solar wind orthe magnetosphere of its parent planet. The largest magnetotail inour solar system is the heliotail, the “magnetotail” ofthe heliosphere. The great differences in solar wind conditions,planetary rotation rates, ionospheric conductivity, and physicaldimensions provide an outstanding opportunity to extend ourunderstanding of the influence of these factors on magnetotailprocesses and structure.

Volume highlights include:

  • A discussion of why a magnetotail is a fundamental issue inmagnetospheric physics
  • A unique collection of tutorials that cover a large range ofmagnetotails in our solar system
  • A comparative approach to magnetotail phenomena, includingreconnection, current sheet, rotation rate, plasmoids, and fluxrobes
  • A review of global simulation studies of the effect ofionospheric outflow on the magnetosphere-ionosphere systemdynamics

Magnetotails in the Solar System brings together for thefirst time in one book a collection of tutorials and currentdevelopments addressing different types of magnetotails. As aresult, this book will appeal to a broad community of spacescientists and be of interest to astronomers who are looking attail-like structures beyond our solar system.
