About this Textbook

This book on the terrestrial space environment is directed at a broad group of students and scientists, who seek knowledge of the methods and results of space research. The only prerequisites are fundamental physics and mathematics as usually acquired in introductory college courses in science or engineering curricula. Stressing physical insight rather than mathematical precision, "Physics of the Earth’s Space Environment" derives further knowledge on selected topics as each phenomenon is considered and strives to present experimental results in conjunction with basic reasoning about the underlying physics. The content’s breadth and introductory nature make this an ideal reader for students in geophysics, meteorology, space sciences and astronomy

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This book is aimed towards readers who are interested in space research. The prerequisite for a full and beneficial reading is a knowledge of fundamental physics and mathematics, a knowledge that is usually acquired in undergraduate studies in science or engineering. These reviewers believe that this book will be quite useful for a general physics teacher who wants to find new applications of fundamental physics. … The figures, illustrations and typesetting of the book are of good quality as usually with Springer … ." (Fernande Grandjean, Physicalia Magazine, Vol. 28 (1), 2006)
