Over the 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. It is now being found that this same interaction is of fundamental importance at other planets and moons throughout the solar system. This proposed monograph will be based on papers given at a cross-discipline AGU Chapman Conference at Yosemite National Park in February, 2014, which examined the details of the coupling processes between the ionosphere and magnetosphere using results from both space measurements and modeling.

Topics that were presented and discussed at the conference included the ionosphere as a source of magnetospheric plasma, the effects of the low energy ionospheric plasma on the stability of the more energetic plasmas, the role of currents and electric/magnetic fields in coupling the two regions, the unified global modeling of the ionosphere and magnetosphere, and the coupling of ionosphere and magnetosphere at other planets and moons in the solar system. Our goal with this monograph is to enhance the understanding of this coupling by researchers in both the heliophysics and planetary science communities through the sharing of measurements and modeling techniques. This Yosemite conference occurred on the 40th anniversary of the initial magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling conference that took place at Yosemite National Park in February 1974 giving a four decade perspective of the progress of space science research in understanding these fundamental processes. Short segments of the video of the original meeting in 1974 were used to set the stage in the sessions and the total original video recording was digitized and is available for the use as an historical resource by the heliophysics and planetary sciences communities. This international scientific conference of 80 space scientists was supported by the American Geophysical Union, the National Science Foundation, and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.

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.
