Dynamics of the Earth's Radiation Belts and internal Magnetosphere attracts jointly present wisdom of the radiation belts ahead of the release of Radiation Belt hurricane Probes (RPSP) and different forthcoming house missions, making this quantity well timed and exact. the quantity will function an invaluable benchmark at this intriguing and pivotal interval in radiation belt learn prior to the hot discoveries that the RPSP project would certainly deliver. Highlights comprise the next: a overview of the present state-of-the-art of radiation belt technology; a whole and up to date account of the wave-particle interactions that regulate the dynamical acceleration and loss techniques of debris within the Earth's radiation belts and internal magnetosphere; a dialogue emphasizing the significance of the cross-energy coupling of the particle populations of the radiation belts, ring present, and plasmasphere in controlling the dynamics of the interior magnetosphere; an overview of the layout and operation of destiny satellite tv for pc missions whose ambitions are to find the dominant actual techniques that keep an eye on the dynamics of the Earth's radiation belts and to develop our point of figuring out of radiation belt dynamics preferably to the purpose of predictability; and an exam of the present nation of information of Earth's radiation belts from earlier and present spacecraft missions to the internal magnetosphere. Dynamics of the Earth's Radiation Belts and Inner Magnetosphere can be an invaluable reference paintings for the expert researcher, the scholar, and the overall reader. furthermore, the quantity might be used as a supplementary textual content in any graduate-level direction in house physics within which radiation belt physics is featured.
