Owing to the potentially strong impact of space weather on communication links, energy grids, and other critical systems, there is a growing need to understand the processes behind the phenomena. This work offers comprehensive account of magnetoseismology for space weather monitoring. Written by researchers on the forefront of this field, the book explains the physics of the movements and waves created by space weather, and how to use magnetoseismology to measure and analyze them. An excellent guide for astronomers, geophysicists, and geologists, it also includes computational codes for analysis and evaluation.

Author Biography

Fred Menk is Professor of Physics at University of Newcastle, Australia. His research and teaching focus on space physics of near-Earth space, ionospheric physics and geomagnetism, including high-end instrumentation to measure needed.
He is member of Academy of Science National Committee on Space Science, and serves as expert review panel member
of the NASA Heliophysics and Geophysics Programs.
He convened 6 international and 7 national conferences and symposia.

Colin Waters is researcher at the University of Newcastle.
Earlier research assignments have been with Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory.
An associate member of COSPAR (Committee on Space Research), his research topic is the study of the dynamics of the near-Earth space environment
and geo-effective processes within the Earth?s magnetosphere, and data analysis techniques for the experimental verification of plasma wave propagation processes.
