Heliophysics is a fast-developing scientific discipline that integrates studies of the Sun's variability, the surrounding heliosphere, and the environment and climate of planets. The Sun is a magnetically variable star and for planets with intrinsic magnetic fields, planets with atmospheres, or planets like Earth with both, there are profound consequences. This 2010 volume, the second in this series of three heliophysics texts, integrates the many aspects of space storms and the energetic radiation associated with them - from causes on the Sun to effects in planetary environments. It reviews the physical processes in solar flares and coronal mass ejections, interplanetary shocks, and particle acceleration and transport, and considers many space weather responses in geospace. In addition to its utility as a textbook, it also constitutes a foundational reference for researchers in fields from heliophysics to climate science. Additional online resources, including lecture presentations and other teaching materials, are available at www.cambridge.org/9780521760515.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The 14-chapter, comprehensive, multiauthored volume provides insightful introductions to space storms and radiation; energetic particle transport and detection; solar eruptions; flares, jets and coronal mass ejections; shocks; trapped particles; and near-Earth space environment responses." T. Eastman, formerly, University of Maryland
"...provides insightful introductions to space storms and radiation; energetic particle transport and detection; solar eruptions, flares, jets, and coronal mass ejections; shocks; trapped particles; and near-Earth space environment responses." CHOICE
"The book gives a very detailed insight into the various fields within heliophysics, both with respect to past and recent findings and the ongoing research, its methods and tools. It is very well illustrated by numerous black and white figures and a number of colour figures...Its understanding does not require high-level mathematics, but a solid knowledge of physics. The quality of the print, the paper and the book as a whole is excellent and it can be recommended without hesitation." - Manuel Vogel, Contemporary Physics, November 2011
