About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 38.

This past onescore years had seen substantial progress in understanding the nature of the plasma domains which play critical roles in the dynamics of the ionosphere and magnetosphere: the diverse auroral plasmas including the striking inverted-V events, the polar cusp and polar wind, the plasmasphere, the bow shock, the magnetotail, the plasma sheet and its boundary and earthward extension. On the other hand, with only a few exceptions, analytic descriptions of the various plasma phenomena that are relevant to the real geometry and physics of the geoplasma environment are generally inadequate.
