  • Plasma Loops in the Solar Coronaby R. J. Bray; L. E. Cram; C. Durrant; R. E. Loughhead

    Cambridge University Press 2006; US$ 104.00

    The first comprehensive account of the properties of plasma loops, the fundamental structural elements of the solar corona. more...

  • Plasma Astrophysics. Kinetic Processes in Solar and Stellar Coronae, Second Editionby Arnold O. Benz

    Springer 2002; US$ 168.00

    This thoroughly revised textbook is a basic introduction to plasma phenomena in solar and stellar coronae emphasizing non-MHD aspects. The way in which the author unifies observations and theory gives a wide perspective to the subject. more...

  • Blowing Bubbles in the Cosmosby T. W. Hartquist; J. E. Dyson; D. P. Ruffle

    Oxford University Press 2004; US$ 54.99

    Many astrophysical bodies produce winds, jets or explosions, which blow bubbles. From a nonmathematical perspective, based on the understanding of bubbles, this book addresses various topics in astrophysics including supernovae, the production of structure in the Early Universe, the environments of supermassive black holes and gamma-ray bursts. more...

  • Solar and Interplanetary Disturbancesby S.K. Alurkar; A. Hewish

    World Scientific Publishing Company 1997; US$ 63.00

    Over the last three decades, a spate of solar wind observations have been made with sophisticated ground-based and space-borne instruments. Two highly successful space missions of the Skylab and the twin spacecraft Helios 1 and 2 have amassed an invaluable wealth of information on the large scale structure of the inner heliosphere, the solar and interplanetary... more...

  • The Solar Coronaby John W. Evans

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    The Solar Corona covers the proceedings of the International Astronomical Union Symposium No. 16 held at Cloudcroft, New Mexico, U.S.A. on August 28-30, 1961. The book focuses on the characteristics, reactions, and analysis of the solar corona. The selection first offers information on the local physics of the corona and comments on coronal heating.... more...

  • A Guide to the Solar Coronaby Donald E. Billings

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 72.95

    A Guide to the Solar Corona is specifically directed to the space scientist or engineer who is not a specialist in solar physics, but whose work requires a fairly detailed knowledge of the corona. It is hoped that the material may prove useful to most graduate students in astrophysics, while solar physicists may find some topics of interest and value... more...

  • Solar Wind Sevenby E. Marsch

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    The third COSPAR Colloquium entitled Solar Wind Seven was held in Goslar, Germany in September 1991. Twenty-two countries were represented by scientists, many of whom are leading experts in the area of heliospheric physics. The Proceedings reflect current research on solar wind and particularly emphasizes the source regions. The main topics covered... more...
