Earthquakes and the Upper Atmosphere
This book describes the physics, mathematics and numerical modeling of the near-Earth medium and its disturbances from seismogenic and solar sources. It formulates the plasma physics foundations, observation data and their interpretation for the nature disaster prediction. The book also demonstrates a coupling between solid (lithosphere) and gaseous (atmosphere, ionosphere, plasmasphere, magnetosphere and solar wind) shells of the Earth, which acts as the force influencing various movements of the geo-environment.
The book will be useful for PhD students and scientists in geophysics and space physics, as well as in radiophysics, ecology, climate change, meteorology, natural disasters, and safety.
