9781634828376: Planetary Influence on the Sun & the Earth & a Modern Book-Burning (Space Science, Exploration and Policies)

Book Description: This book is primarily concerned with fundamental components of solar physics, terrestrial geophysics and general climate issues. Phenomena such as planetary influence on solar variability, the Sun's irradiance and solar wind continue to fascinate members of the scientific community. What is more astounding is the way in which our planet reacts to these occurrences; climate changes, sea levels, tides, ocean circulation and geomagnetism, all caused by the processes mentioned above. The pages that follow analyze and calculate the relationships between solar causation and terrestrial reaction. This work begins with a foreword from Walter Cunningham, the famous Apollo 7 astronaut who in 1968 took part in the first manned space flight. Section A is devoted to the concept of planetary-solar-terrestrial interaction and driving forces that represent a break-through in science. The book begins with a high-lightening of records indicating a planetary influence on solar activity and continues with multiple discussions of terrestrial variables. It concludes with an account of the physics behind the changes in the Sun and in the Earth. Section B presents the remarkable decision to terminate the journal of pattern recognition in physics because the authors concluded that we are now on our way into a new grand solar minimum. This inspires doubt in an accelerating global warming. In the name of science and ethics, five papers respond to this "modern book-burning". Section C is devoted to general conclusions, co-authored by 19 eminent scientists in the field of solar physics, geophysics, geology, hydrology and climatology. It also includes a short note on concluding editorial views. (Imprint: Nova)

About the Author:

Nils-Axel ("Niklas") Mörner took his Ph.D.-thesis in 1969 in Quaternary Geology. He has published several hundreds of scientific papers in topics like sea level changes, paleoclimate, glacial isostatic uplift, paleoseismology, neotectonics, paleomagnetism, earth's rotation, geomagnetism solar-terrestrial interaction. He has been editor of several books and special issues: "Earth Rheology, Isostasy and Eustasy" (Wiley, 1980), "Climate Change on a Yearly to Millennial Basis" (Kluwer, 1984), "Paleoseismicity and Neotectonics" (Tectonophysics, 1989), "The Tsunami Threat: research and technology" (InTech, 2011), "Pattern in Solar Variability, their Planetary Origin and Terrestrial Impact" (PRP, 2013), "Geochronology: methodology and case studies" (InTech, 2014), "Johan Skytte, his donation in 1622 and the Johan Skytte Prize in Political Science" (2014). In 2008, he was awarded "The Golden Condrite of Merits" from Algarve University "for his irreverence and contribution to our understanding of sea level change". He held a personal associate professorship at the Swedish National Research Council (1978-2005) and was head of the department of Paleogeophysics & Geodynamics at Stockholm University (1991-2005).
