  • Plasma Assisted Decontamination of Biological and Chemical Agents

    Plasma decontamination is a rapidly expanding area of modern science and engineering. An increasing number of engineers are using plasma methods for decontamination of chemical and biological agents. Plasma decontamination is effectively applied today to clean and sterilize different surfaces, high volume air and water streams, industrial ...

  • Environmental Aspects of Converting CW Facilities to Peaceful Purposes

    There is hardly any information available on the chronic effects of low doses of chemical warfare agents, but there is a growing body of data on the chronic effects of exposure to other toxic materials (PAHs, PABs and the like). One of the four main themes of the book is thus the chronic effects of extended exposure to low doses of toxic material. ...

  • Ionospheric Precursors of Earthquakes

    The book aims to explain the variations of near-Earth plasma observed over seismically active areas several days/hours before strong seismic shocks. It demonstrates how seismo-ionospheric coupling is part of the global electric circuit and shows that the anomalous electric field appearing in active seismic areas is the main carrier of information ...

  • Physics of the Solar Corona

    Solar science has evolved rapidly over the past ten years as the results of a new generation of solar space missions have become available. This book provides a thorough introduction to the subject of solar physics, based on those spacecraft observations. The author introduces the solar corona, which has a temperature of several million degrees, ...

  • Mars´ Magnetism, and Its Interaction with the Solar Wind

    Given that the question of an internal magnetic field is of fundamental importance to the understanding of Mars' formation and thermal evolution, and of the evolution of Mars' atmosphere, surprisingly few of the many spacecraft sent to Mars were equipped with instrumentation for such investigations. Of the 9 or so orbiters that have successfully ...

  • Future Perspectives of Space Plasma and Particle Instrumentation and International Collaborations

    Future perspectives on space-borne/ground-based state-of-the-art scientific instruments, exploration space missions, and advanced modeling/simulation methods, are intensively discussed from multilateral viewpoints regarding solar-terrestrial physics, space plasma, upper atmospheric observations for the Earth and planets. In addition to innovative ...

  • The Outer Planets and their Moons

    This volume gives an integrated summary of the science related to the four giant planets in our solar system. It is the result of an ISSI workshop on 'A comparative study of the outer planets before the exploration of Saturn by Cassini-Huygens' which was held at ISSI in Bern on January 12-16, 2004. Representatives of several scientific ...

  • Space Weather

    The editors present a state-of-the-art overview on the Physics of Space Weather and its effects on technological and biological systems on the ground and in space.
