This unique NASA resource introduces Heliophysics: the study of the Sun's influence throughout the solar system and, in particular, its connection to the Earth. Learn about topics such as Space Weather, Solar Variability, the Heliosphere, etc.
by Alexander G. Kosovichev - arXiv , 2011
Helioseismology studies the structure and dynamics of the Sun's interior by observing oscillations on the surface. The basic principles, recent advances and perspectives of global and local helioseismology are reviewed in this text.

Here we describe the magnetic field from the convection zone, where it is built up by the solar dynamo, to the solar surface, where it manifests itself in the form of sunspots and faculae, and beyond into the solar atmosphere and heliosphere.
by Jay M. Pasachoff - Alpha , 2003
Everything revolves around it...and now you can learn all about the origin and history of the sun. With information on the sun's physical properties; how solar flares, sunspots, and winds on its surface affect Earth's atmosphere and environment.
by Calvin J. Hamilton , 2008
This page presents a vivid adventure unfolding the splendor of the Sun, planets, moons, comets, asteroids, and more. Discover the latest scientific information, or study the history of space exploration, scientific facts, graphics and videos.
