Nice Introduction to Space Physics
by Jim Crumley on 2005-08-19 07:35:03, review #461
The Oulu Space Physics Textbook provides a good introduction to Space Physics. Its written at a level where anyone who has had introductory physics can follow it, while those who have had more physics can get more out of it.

The book is divided into 5 parts. The "Plasma Physics" sections provides some basic knowledge of plasma that is needed to understand the study of Space Physics. "Regions of Interests" lays out the geography of both the Heliosphere and Magnetosphere. "Phenomena of Interest" describes some of the interesting physics that goes on in space. "Space Physics Instrumentation and Analysis Methods" talks a little bit about some of the equipment and methods used in space physics research. Finally, "Appendices" provides some useful definitions and background.
