Measurement Techniques in Space Plasmas: Particles

F. Pfaff, E. Borovsky, and T. Young (Eds.)

Space plasma measurements are conducted in a hostile, remote environment. The art and science of measurements gathered in space depend therefore on unique instrument designs and fabrication methods to an extent perhaps unprecedented in experimental physics. In‐situ measurement of space plasmas constitutes an expensive, unforgiving, and highly visible form of scientific endeavor.
