Physics of the Magnetopause

P. Song, B. U. Ö. Sonnerup, and M. F. Thomsen (Eds.)

This volume provides a comprehensive overview of our current observational knowledge and theoretical understanding of the outer boundary of the Earth's magnetic field: the magnetopause. All mass, momentum, and energy transferred from the solar-wind plasma flow into the geomagnetic cavity must cross the magnetopause. The magnetopause itself is closely coupled to the high-latitude ionosphere. For this reason, the volume should be of interest not only to scientists and students concerned with the physics of the magnetopause proper but also to magnetospheric, ionospheric, and upper atmospheric workers in general. Much of the material in the volume is relevant to other planetary magnetopauses and, as an example of an interface between two collisionless plasmas, the Earth's magnetopause is also relevant in solar, interplanetary, cosmic, and laboratory plasma physics.
