Most widely held works by James A Van Allen
Origins of magnetospheric physics by James A Van Allen( )

23 editions published between 1983 and 2004 in English and held by 1,768 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 1,657 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

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

Responses to History of Geophysics Survey by Center for History of Physics (American Institute of Physics)( )

3 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Responses to a survey of approximately 250 leading geophysicists worldwide, conducted by the American Institute of Physics (AIP) Center for History of Physics and the Committe on History of Geophysics of the American Geophysical Union in 1997. Recipients were asked to send copies of their curriculum vitae and a list of publications as Part One of the survey and were then asked to discuss their entry into science in general and geophysics specifically as a career; how their scientific achievements came about and major efforts they were involved in which did not achieve the hoped for results; changes from one discipline to another; funding sources; the role of other disciplines in their own research; their work as educators; and their involvement in geophysics-related institutions. Responses, including questionnaires, curriculum vitae, lists of publications, or autobiographical statements, were contributed by: Philip H. Abelson, Keiiti Aki, Leroy R. Alldredge, Clarence R.
