Over a half century of exploration of the Earth's space environment, it has become evident that the interaction between the ionosphere and the magnetosphere plays a dominant role in the evolution and dynamics of magnetospheric plasmas and fields. Interestingly, it was recently discovered that this same interaction is of fundamental importance at other planets and moons throughout the solar system. Based on papers presented at an interdisciplinary AGU Chapman Conference at Yosemite National Park in February 2014, this volume provides an intellectual and visual journey through our exploration and discovery of the paradigm-changing role that the ionosphere plays in determining the filling and dynamics of Earth and planetary environments. The 2014 Chapman conference marks the 40th anniversary of the initial magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling conference at Yosemite in 1974, and thus gives a four decade perspective of the progress of space science research in understanding these fundamental coupling processes. Digital video links to an online archive containing both the 1974 and 2014 meetings are presented throughout this volume for use as an historical resource by the international heliophysics and planetary science communities.

Topics covered in this volume include:

  • Ionosphere as a source of magnetospheric plasma
  • Effects of the low energy ionospheric plasma on the stability and creation of the more energetic plasmas
  • The unified global modeling of the ionosphere and magnetosphere at the Earth and other planets
  • New knowledge of these coupled interactions for heliophysicists and planetary scientists, with a cross-disciplinary approach involving advanced measurement and modeling techniques

Magnetosphere-Ionosphere Coupling in the Solar System is a valuable resource for researchers in the fields of space and planetary science, atmospheric science, space physics, astronomy, and geophysics.

Editors say that the authors of the chapters would want to have a copy and their departments may choose to use the monograph in the classroom. This subject matter is in the paradigm–changing mode and it is on the agenda for a large number of national and international meetings within the heliophysics and planetary sciences communities.
The monograph will be of interest in the Space Physics and Aeronomy Section, the Atmospheric Science Section and the Planetary Science Section of the American Geophysical Union. There have been a number of AGU/Wiley monographs which also appeal to these sections including two recent monographs on the radiation belts and the aurora.
In addition to the American Geophysical Union, international organizations such as Congress of Space Research, the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy, and the Ameri–can Astronomical Society would have members who are very interested in the subject of this monograph. Within the space exploration funding agencies, there will be interest from the Na–tional Aeronautics and Space Administration, the National Science Foundation, and the Europe–an Space Agency. I am not in a position to estimate the bulk sale potential.
