Title:Coronal Mass Ejections [electronic resource] : An Introduction
Author(s): Timothy Howard
Date:2011
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:In times of growing technological sophistication and of our dependence on electronic technology, we are all affected by space weather. In its most extreme form, space weather can disrupt communications, damage and destroyspacecraft and power stations , and increase radiation exposure to astronauts and airline passengers. Major space weather events, called geomagnetic storms, are large disruptions in the Earths magnetic field brought about by thearrival of enormous magnetized plasma clouds from the Sun . Coronal mass ejections (CMEs) contain billions of tons of plasma and hurtle through space at speeds of several million miles per hour. Understanding coronal mass ejections andtheir impact on the Earth is of great interest to both the scientific and tech nological communities. This book provides an introduction to coronal mass ejections, including a history of their observation and scientific revelations,instruments and theory behind their detection and measurement, and the status quo of theories describi ng their onset and evolution through the heliosphere. We present the story behind the life of a CME, from its magnetic field originsin the solar corona and photosphere to its eventual fate deep in the heliosphere. The intention is to provide an easily acc essible resource for those who are seeking to learn more about this fascinating and crucial naturalphenomenon

Title:Experimental Techniques in Nuclear and Particle Physics [electronic resource]
Author(s): Stefaan Tavernier
Date:2010
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:The book is based on a course in nuclear and particle physics that the author has taught over many years to physics students, students in nuclear engineering and students in biomedical engineering. It provides the basicunderstanding that any student or researcher using such instruments and techniques should have about the subject. After an introduction to the structure of matter at the subatomic scale, it covers the experimental aspects of nuclearand particle physics. Ideally complementing a theoreti cally-oriented textbook on nuclear physics and/or particle physics, it introduces the reader to the different techniques used in nuclear and particle physics to accelerate particlesand to measurement techniques (detectors) in nuclear and particle physics. The main subjects treated are: interactions of subatomic particles in matter particle accelerators basics of different types of detectors and nuclearelectronics. The book will be of interest to undergraduates, graduates and researchers in both particle a nd nuclear physics. For the physicists it is a good introduction to all experimental aspects of nuclear and particle physics.Nuclear engineers will appreciate the nuclear measurement techniques, while biomedical engineers can learn about measuring ionisin g radiation, the use of accelerators for radiotherapy. Whats more, worked examples, end-of-chapterexercises, and appendices with key constants, properties and relationships supplement the textual material
