MEDIA REVIEWS
'attractively produced, well illustrated, readable and interesting ... Mathematics is kept to an elementary level, the intention being to describe the basic concepts. To this end the author has done a good job.' Nature
'As a textbook it is the most comprehensive single author, graduate-level treatment of solar-terrestrial phenomena available ... Hargreaves writes lucidly, plumbs each topic to a uniform, graduate-level depth and has a sure sense of what to include, what to emphasize and what to omit.' Physics Today
'The offer as paperback makes it an absolute bargain ... This book is clearly written, concise and encompasses all major topics affecting the earth's environment.' Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics
"...an absolute bargain....the book is clearly written, concise, and encompasses all major topics affecting the earth's environment...it will do very well as a textbook in upper atmosphere meteorology and in electrical engineering..." Elmar R. Reiter, Meteorology and Atmospheric Physics
"The textbook by J. K. Hargreaves is attractively produced, well illustrated, readable and interesting. It is intended for final-year undergraduates and first-year postgraduates taking courses in upper-atmospheric, ionospheric or magnetospheric physics. Mathematics is kept to an elementary level, the intention being to describe the basic concepts. To this end, the author has done a good job, and the book is a more thorough and improved version of his previous volume." Mark Saunders, Nature
"The writing is clear, authoritative, and occasionally humorous." T. Barker, Choice
"As a textbook, it is the most comprehensive single-autnor, graduate-level treatment of solar-terrestrial phenomena available." George L. Siscoe, Physics Today
