Sprites are arguably the most dramatic discovery in solar-terrestrial physics. Shortly after the first ground based video recordings of sprites, observations on board the Space Shuttle detected sprites and elves occurring all around the world. These reports led to sprite observations in North America, South America, Australia, Japan, and Europe. more...

Dust storms, produced by the removal of surface materials from the world's drylands, are a vital component of the environment. This book explores and summarises research on where dust storms originate, why dust storms are generated, where dust is transported and deposited, the nature of dust deposits and the changing frequency of dust storms. more...

Clouds are an important factor in the weather. This book summarizes knowledge on cloud optical properties, for example their ability to absorb, transmit, and reflect light, which depends on the clouds' geometrical and microphysical characteristics. It also addresses problems related to the image transfer through clouds and cloud remote sensing. more...

Treats the elements of radio wave propagation without requiring recourse to advanced electromagnetic concepts and equations. This work offers an analysis of how energy is conveyed in free space, taking a radiative transfer approach and thus avoiding the need to understand electric and magnetic field propagation at the outset. more...

Addresses a gap in the literature, offering an explanation of the aurora's causes, how the occurrence of major events may be predicted, and how amateur observers can go about recording displays. This book aims to describe the aurora from the amateur observational viewpoint. It discusses professional studies of auroral/geomagnetic phenomena. more...
