This volume represents the state of the art of the science covered by the International Association of Geomagnetism and Aeronomy (IAGA) Division IV: Solar Wind and Interplanetary Field. It contains a collection of contributions by top experts addressing and reviewing a variety of topics included under the umbrella of the division. It covers subjects that extend from the interior of the Sun to the heliopause, and from the study of physical processes in the Sun and the solar wind plasma to space weather forecasts. The book is organized in 6 parts: the solar interior, the solar atmosphere, the heliosphere, heliophysical processes, radio emissions, and coordinated science in the Sun-Earth system. In addition, we highlight some of the results presented during the IAGA Division IV symposia in the 11th Scientific Assembly of IAGA in Sopron, Hungary, on 23-30 August 2009, which was planned simultaneously with this book.

This video-augmented book explains how the natural movements of the sun, wind and rain can be used to improve the well-being of people in buildings and raise awareness of sustainable living practices. In demonstrating how buildings can be designed to reconcile their traditional role as shelter from the elements with the active inclusion of their movement, the book shows how, in the process of separating us from the extremes of the natural world, architecture can also be a means of reconnecting us with nature.Related Link(s)

Feeling good means looking good, and this could be translated as wisdom of words of health and wellness. The lessons of solar exposure, melanoma, and the skin cancer awareness do not mean that we should stay indoors. The Florida Author, Ida Tomshinsky, invites you to grab some sunscreens, protective clothing, and sunglasses. Get ready to learn about the sun power and changing environmental factors in hot summers and in cold windy winters. The storyline in the book makes readers to think about makeup and fashion accessories of the past and present times, to make the connection between the seasons, places, people, and events that occurred years and miles apart, and in the end, all the pieces will fit together in one complete puzzle. The book is a continuation of the History of Fashion Accessories Series with new topics of cosmetics, and exposure to the elements of sun and wind.
