From the Publisher:

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.

About the Author:

I started out as as research assistant for the Auroral Observatory in Tromsø i 1966 and completed my Cand Real exam in physics at the Univerity of Oslo based on auroral optical stuides from Tromsø and Svalbard. In 1972 I left the observatory for a position at the University of California in San Diego (UCSD)  where I was engaged as a research scientist on the Chatanika Incoherent Scatter Radar sytem close to Fairbanks Alaska. After two years at UCSD I went back to a permanent position as associate professor at the Auroral Observatory that in the meantime had become a cornerstone in the newly established University of Tromsø (UiT). Based on the work I did at UCSD I obtained my Dr. philos degree in 1975 at UiT. From in 1989 I was appointed full professor in physics at UiT. In 1993 I was appointed adjunct professor at The University Centre on Svalbard. I therefore have a long experience as university teacher in physics with central elements in auroral and upper polar atmosphere physics. I started out working on this book in support of my lectures when I became  employed in a permanent position at UiT in 1976..
In 1997 I published the text book "Physics of the Upper Polar Atmosphere" that the present book is a revision of. This book has been used extensively by students all over the world and it has been translated into Japanese. As this book is sold out from the printer I have been approached many times by collegues whether it could be published as a second edition.
