 Summary

"Alfvén waves are fundamental to the dynamics of space plasmas. This recognition is one of the great achievements in space research, going back to the beginning of the last century, when Hannes Alfvén published his groundbreaking paper in 1942, which ultimately led to him receiving the Nobel price. Alfvén waves are important in the energization of ionospheric plasma. There is also a growing recognition of the global energy transport by Alfvén waves in the magnetosphereionosphere system" Provided by publisher.

 Summary

"Cloud Physics and Dynamics: Role and its Effects in Climate provides a brief overview to basics in each subfield, followed by a discussion of recent advances and remaining open questions along three "axes": radiation, circulation, and precipitation. Clouds are important because they affect the terrestrial radiative budget, reflecting incoming solar radiation and absorbing and reemitting outgoing terrestrial radiation. Then, clouds are not only generated by the global circulation but also feedback on it, for example in the Intertropical Convergence Zone and the midlatitude storm tracks. Finally, changes to clouds mean changes to surface precipitation rates. These themes emphasize the motivations of better climate projections and rainfall forecasts better than traditional layout according to cloud types or modeling versus observational techniques."
