By Götz Paschmann,Stein Haaland,Rudolf Treumann

the current fifteenth quantity of the ISSI area technological know-how sequence is dedicated to Auroral Plasma Physics. The aurora is arguably the main exciting phenomenon in area plasma physics. not just is it the main excellent manifestation of the Sun-Earth connection chain, however the underlying plasma approaches are anticipated to be ubiqui tous within the plasma universe. spotting the big development revamped the decade within the figuring out of the physics of the auroral acceleration techniques, it appeared well timed to jot down a complete and built-in booklet at the topic. Re cent advances predicament the rationalization of the character of the acceleration technique of the electrons which are accountable for the noticeable aurora, the popularity of the basic position of the large-scale present structures in organizing the auroral mor phology, and of the interaction among debris and electromagnetic fields. The venture started in March 1999, as a common follow-up of the venture on Magnetospheric Plasma assets and Losses that ended in quantity 6 of this se ries, with a making plans assembly through a core-group that coordinated the undertaking. the crowd consisted of J. E. Borovsky, Los Alamos nationwide Laboratory; C. W. Carl son, college of California, Berkeley; G. Haerendel, Max-Planck-Institut fur ex traterrestrische Physik, Garching; B. Hultqvist, Swedish Intitute ofSpace Physics, H. E. J. Koskinen, Finnish Meteorological Institute, Helsinki; W. Lotko, Kiruna; Dartmouth university, Hanover, New Hampshire; okay. A. Lynch, college of recent Hampshire, Durham and G. Marklund, Royal Institute ofTechnology, Stockholm. G. Paschmann, ISSI, Bern, was once the undertaking leader.
