Course Description
In this class, the general physical and dynamical structure of the upper atmospheric layers, namely, Stratosphere, Mesosphere, Thermosphere, Ionosphere and Magnetosphere, are studied using theory, available simple models and satellite and/or ground based data. In addition, the Sun, atmospheric layers of the Sun and solar activity, interaction between solar flares and CMEs and upper atmosphere, space weather concept and its effects on upper atmosphere, Sun-Cosmic Ray-Climate interaction are studied. Practical implications of upper atmospheric variability towards meteorological and space engineering are given.
