About the Authors
  • Heliophysics is a fast-developing discipline that integrates studies of the Sun's variability, the surrounding heliosphere, and the environment and climate of planets. Over the past few centuries, our understanding of how the Sun drives space weather and climate on the Earth and other planets has advanced dramatically. This set brings together three books edited by Carolus Schrijver and George Siscoe, which together provide a complete guide to heliophysics – covering the full range of sub-disciplines that constitute this field. Supplemented by online teaching materials, the volumes can be used as textbooks for graduate courses or as a foundational reference resource for researchers in fields from astrophysics and plasma physics to planetary and atmospheric science. The set price is currently not available longer available, but the three individual volumes may be purchased separately: Heliophysics: Plasma Physics of the Local Cosmos (Volume I) Heliophysics: Space Storms and Radiation: Causes and Effects (Volume II) Heliophysics: Evolving Solar Activity and the Climates of Space and Earth (Volume III)

    • Authored by a team of expert researchers and trialed at NASA's 'Living with a Star' summer school where this material has been taught
    • Unites the many subdisciplines related to the Sun-Earth connections under the umbrella of 'heliophysics', helping readers to quickly grasp the big picture
    • Highlights parallels and differences of approach, allowing readers to apply their knowledge to other disciplines and quickly understand key questions and assumptions

    Carolus J. Schrijver, Solar and Astrophysics Laboratory, Lockheed Martin
    Carolus J. Schrijver is an astrophysicist studying the causes and effects of magnetic activity of the Sun and of stars like the Sun, and the coupling of the Sun's magnetic field into the surrounding heliosphere. He obtained his doctorate in physics and astronomy at the Universiteit Utrecht, The Netherlands in 1986, and has since worked for the University of Colorado, the US National Solar Observatory, the European Space Agency and the Royal Academy of Sciences of the Netherlands. Dr Schrijver is currently principal physicist at Lockheed Martin's Advanced Technology Center, where his work focuses primarily on the magnetic field in the solar atmosphere. He is an editor or editorial board member of several journals including Solar Physics, Astronomical Notices and Living Reviews in Solar Physics, and has co-edited three other books.

    George L. Siscoe, Boston University
    George L. Siscoe received his PhD in physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 1964. He has since held positions at the California Institute of Technology, MIT, and the University of California, Los Angeles, where he was Professor and Chair of the Department of Atmospheric Sciences. He is currently a Research Professor in the Astronomy Department at Boston University. Professor Siscoe has been a member and chair of numerous international committees and panels and is on the editorial board of the Journal of Atmospheric and Solar Terrestrial Physics. He is a Fellow of the American Geophysical Union and the second Van Allen Lecturer of the AGU, 1991. He has authored or co-authored over 300 publications that cover most areas of heliophysics.
