Cometary and solar plasma physics: invited reviews of the Plasma Physics College: International Centre for Theoretical Physics, Trieste. [B Buti; International Centre for Theoretical Physics.;]. Walter J. Heikkila, in Earth's Magnetosphere, The space plasma physics community is active in extending the knowledge of plasma physics to the Sun, and other objects in astrophysics. NASA's panel on Sun-Solar System Connection suggested four fundamental processes as the critical immediate steps: magnetic reconnection, particle .

A comet is a body in the solar system that orbits the Sun. It consists of a nucleus that is perhaps made of rock, dust, and ice, and may exhibits a coma (atmosphere, with associated ionosphere, magnetosphere, sometimes called a plasmasphere), and/or one or more tails: an ion tail (or plasma tail) and dust tail. The present volume covers such topics as global problems in magnetospheric plasma physics; magnetosphere, ionosphere, and atmosphere interactions; Jupiter's magnetosphere and radiation belts, the magnetosphere of Mercury; interactions of the solar wind with the planets Mars, Venus, and Mercury; and interactions between the solar wind and comets.

The ICE passage through the tail of Comet Giacobini‐Zinner on Septem and the flyby of Comet Halley in March by a fleet of spacecraft have provided for the first time an in situ study of the interaction of the solar wind with a cometary plasma under various solar and cometary conditions..

This textbook studies the solar wind and other plasma environments. It is aimed for students of space physics.
