Editorial Reviews

Review

"...the authors expertly explain the basic theories of solar corona generation and the dynamics of flux-tubes, sunspots, flares, the solar magnetic field, and solar wind, with well-written, easy-to-read prose, organized presentation of material, and reviews of the latest ideas. Physically the book is a well-bound, well-written publication on quality, semi-gloss paper, with numerous well-labeled graphs, tables, and figures. Many recent and relevant photos (all black and white) from Earth-based and space-based instruments are used to illustrate concepts." JRASC

"...provides a welcome update on the immense progress that has occurred over the last 20 years...a pleasure to read." Physics Today

Book Description

Observations from the ground and space have advanced our knowledge of the solar corona dramatically over the last three decades. This textbook is the first to present this new understanding at a level appropriate for advanced undergraduate and graduate students, and researchers seeking an entry-point into the research literature. This timely volume presents a lucid and synthesised review of the latest observations of the solar corona and how they have advanced and shaped our understanding of coronal physics. This book provides a much-needed introduction to coronal physics for advanced students and researchers.
