Additional resources for An Introduction to Space Weather Example text Another example, solar flares, are much more energetic than prominences. This is possible because the Sun is a ball of gas. This energy is equivalent to hundreds of millions of megaton hydrogen bombs exploding at the same time. This is a lot of mass, but very little compared with the total mass of the Sun. The energy from nuclear fusion is emitted in the form of gamma rays — the highest-energy form of electromagnetic radiation.

Communication with Extraterrestrial Intelligence Highlights the main fresh advancements within the look for Extraterrestrial Intelligence SETI , and advocates a various variety of ways to make SETI more and more robust and powerful within the future years. Additional resources for An Introduction to Space Weather Example text Another example, solar flares, are much more energetic than prominences.

This is possible because the Sun is a ball of gas. This energy is equivalent to hundreds of millions of megaton hydrogen bombs exploding at the same time. This is a lot of mass, but very little compared with the total mass of the Sun. The energy from nuclear fusion is emitted in the form of gamma rays — the highest-energy form of electromagnetic radiation. As gamma-ray photons make their way through the Sun — colliding and being absorbed and re-emitted by the matter in the Sun — they lose energy.

Eventually the energy leaves the photosphere, mostly in the form of visible light. A small amount of the energy is carried off by neutrinos as a by-product of the fusion process. These areas of activity are simply called active regions. This conversion takes place in regions of strong magnetic fields, and the twisting of the surface magnetic field often leads to rapid energy release.

About this title Space weather is an emerging field of space science focused on understanding societal and technological impacts of the solar-terrestrial relationship. This textbook introduces the relationship between the Sun and Earth, and shows how it impacts our technological society. One of the first undergraduate textbooks on space weather aimed at non-science majors, it uses the practical aspects of space weather to introduce space physics and give students an understanding of the Sun-Earth relationship. Definitions of important terms are given throughout the text.
