About the book

The Earth’s magnetic field extends into space and forms a protective bubble called the magnetosphere. Earth’s magnetic field is vital to life on our planet. It is a complex and dynamic force that protects us from cosmic radiation and charged particles from the Sun. The study of the Earth's magnetosphere is focused on investigating the Earth’s magnetosphere and its relationship with the solar wind. Knowledge of Newton’s law, Maxwell’s equations, Helmholtz’s theorem, and more other theories helps with understanding this relation. Moreover, understanding magnetosphere substorms, magnetosphere-ionosphere coupling, plasma and particle simulations is also beneficial. Also, knowing the role of satellite measurements in this issue and examining the effect of the geomagnetic storms is useful. The book “Magnetosphere” will among other things also highlight new methods to study the Earth’s space.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marina Dusevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
