Understanding Space Weather is an introduction to space weather and solar physics. Second Ediion, 2015. An Inkling ebook.
Understanding Space Weather and the Physics Behind It contains numerous examples of basic physics applications in space weather. In addition, new material is being developed to support the many references to NOAA Space Weather Prediction Center (SWPC) graphics and scales. Materials include observation sequences for the types of space weather disturbances discussed in SWPC's Report on Solar and Geophysical Activity and the NOAA Space Weather Scales. Instructional materials are in standard electronic document formats and in "dashboard" format supported by tools from the Integrated Space Weather Analysis platform at NASA's Community Coordinated Modeling Center.
