Origins of magnetospheric physics by James A Van Allen( )

22 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and held by 1,781 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Early in 1958, instruments on the space satellites Explorer I and Explorer III revealed the presence of radiation belts, enormous populations of energetic particles trapped in the magnetic field of the earth. Originally published in 1983 but long out of print until now, Origins of Magnetospheric Physics tells the story of this dramatic and hugely transformative period in scientific and Cold War history. Writing in an accessible style and drawing on personal journals, correspondence, published papers, and the recollections of colleagues, James Van Allen documents a trail-blazing era in space hi
924 elementary problems and answers in solar system astronomy by James A Van Allen( )

9 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 1,665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This challenging collection of problems is organized into seven carefully crafted, thoughtful chapters on the Sun and the nature of the solar system; the motion of the planets; the Sun, Earth, and Moon; the sky as observed from the rotating, revolving Earth; other planets, their satellites, their rings; asteroids, comets, and meteoroids; and the radiations and telescopes. From question 1, "List characteristics of the solar system that are major clues in devising a hypothesis of its origin and evolution," through question 924, "Give a brief list of the contributions of radio and

Findings on rings and inner satellites of Saturn by Pioneer 11 by James A Van Allen( Book )

4 editions published in 1982 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The introductory part of this paper gives a short account of the theory of absorption by planetary rings and satellites of energetic charged particles that are trapped in a planet's magnetic field and describes the observable consequences of such absorption processes. The University of Iowa observations of absorption features during Pioneer 11's passage through Saturn's inner radiation belt on 1 September 1979 are critically reanalyzed and related to other evidence on rings and inner satellites, especially that from Voyagers 1 and 2. It is found: (a) that satellites 1979 S1, 1979 S2, and 1980 S3 are almost certainly identical; (b) that 1979 S4 appears to be the shadow of an otherwise unreported satellite of radius <or approx = 25 km at an orbital radius of 151,300 + or - 80 km and at a longitude between 195 deg and 208 deg at JED 244 4118.25654; (c) that 1979 S5 and two other nearby absorption features and 1979 S6 and one other nearby absorption feature are probably caused by longitudinal and radial structure of Ring F; and (d) that absorption feature 1979 S3 at 169,300 + or - 600 km is identified with Ring G.

The correlation of x-ray radiation (2-12 Å) with microwave radiation (10.7 cm) from the non-flaring sun by M. Jean Gibson( Book )

3 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present paper utilizes (a) an extended, homogeneous body of solar x-ray observations (2 - 12 A) by University of Iowa equipment on the earth-orbiting satellite Explorer 33 and the moor-orbiting satellite Explorer 35 for 734 days during the period 1 July 1966 to 25 December 1968 and (b) the 10.7 cm (2800 MHz) daily solar radio flux values of the Algonquin Radio Observatory. The specific purposes of the work are to establish the relationship between daily average values of the x-ray and radio fluxes from the whole disc of the non-flaring sun and to consider the significance of the relationship
