Title: Physics of the Aurora: Earth Systems
Url: https://www.meted.ucar.edu/training_module.php?id=161
Publisher: National Center for Atmospheric Research (U.S.)
Description: This interactive learning module introduces the systems and processes through which the magnetic field and upper atmosphere of the earth capture the solar wind to light up the polar sky. Developed especially for university professors and students in the fields of physics and astronomy, this module includes sections on the history, lore, and science of the aurora, the magnetosphere, the thermosphere-ionosphere, basic electromagnetism, and upper-atmospheric physics.
