Solar Systems: A Detailed Analysis

ByPeter Anto JohnsonUnaiza Asad

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Solar storms are our solar system’s largest explosive event and occur when the sun’s magnetic field instantly snaps into a new configuration, which releases large amounts of energy accompanied with intense light flashes, radiation, and coronal mass ejections. Solar storms have their roots in an 11 year cycle that shifts the polarity of the sun’s magnetic field. When the magnetic forces at work on the sun get tangled, they can punch through the surface and send out intense bursts of radiation, potentially triggering storms on Earth. This book will cover everything from the origins of solar storm theories and discoveries, to the science behind solar storms and their effect on Earth’s climate and human health and activity. This book will also explain what still puzzles scientists about solar storms, why it is important for us to forecast space weather, and the idea of humans playing a future role in preventing these storms.
