The Exploration of the Earth's Magnetosphere DLESE Reviewed Collection
This non-mathematical, self-contained exposition of studies of the Earth's magnetic environment in space covers such topics as magnetism, electrons, eons and plasmas, the radiation belt, the sun and the solar wind, exploring earthspace, the dynamic magnetosphere, auroras, and interplanetary field lines. Many of the topics introduce the user to the related physics and astronomy, and are thus a useful supplement to high school or freshmen physics. This resource is also available in Spanish.
