About this book

Presents a comprehensive approach to the open questions in solar cosmic ray research and includes consistent and detailed considerations of conceptual, observational, theoretical, experimental and applied aspects of the field. The results of solar cosmic ray (SCR) investigations from 1942 to the present are summarized in this book. It treats the research questions in a self-contained form in all of its associations, from fundamental astrophysical aspects to geophysical, aeronautical and cosmonautical applications. A large amount of new data is included, which has been accumulated during the last several decades of space research. This second edition contains numerous updates and corrections to the text, figures and references. The author has also added several new sections about GLEs and radiation hazards. In addition, an extensive bibliography is provided, which covers non-partially the main achievements and failures in the field.  This volume is aimed at graduate students and researchers in solar physics and space science.

About the authors

Prof. Leonty Miroshnichenko obtained his PhD in Physics and Mathematics in 1991 and is currently a professor at IZMIRAN, in the Sector of Helio-Ecological Relations. His research interests include solar cosmic rays, radiation hazards in space, solar flares, solar gamma radiation, interplanetary dynamical processes, diagnostics and forecasts of solar proton events and solar-terrestrial relations. He has written approximately 250 publications, including 11 books on solar cosmic rays and solar-terrestrial relations.
