Sun and S Guide - Resources and Review

A bibliographic database on research, programs, and results which relate to the use of satellite remote sensing for disaster mitigation. A compilation of abstracted articles published since 1981 in relevant areas including: fires, eruptions, earthquakes, landslides, flooding, hurricanes, tsunami, avalanches
ISES aims to unite researchers and workers in applied solar energy.
International peer reviewed journal of the Tsunami Society intended to increase and disseminate knowledge about tsunamis and their hazards. Offers tables of contents and abstracts for issues from 1992 onwards.
Collection of data relating to solar activity, the ionosphere, and geomagnetic variations. Includes the numbers, positions, areas, and classifications of sunspots, radio flux measurements, solar irradiance measurements, and x
ray observations of the corona. Also covers flare-associated events and cosmic rays. Data sets are available via FTP.
Programme seeking to mitigate tsunami hazards, with research and development activities focusing on improved tsunami inundation maps, other hazard assessment tools, and advanced technology to increase the speed and accuracy of tsunami forecasts and warnings. Offers information on field observations, database development and tsunami modelling.
An international project to study the interior structure and dynamics of the Sun. The SOI program was responsible for design and operation of the Michelson Doppler Imager (MDI) instrument on board the Solar and Heliospheric Observatory (SOHO) spacecraft launched on 2 December 1995. As well as news and press releases about the project for the general public, there is a helioseismology bibliography and information about participation in the project and access to data for scientists and students.
Details of research carried out at NASA / Goddard on global climate and solar radiation.
dimensional images of the nine planets, their satellites, asteroids, and the Sun that can be found on the 3-D Tour CD-ROM. Most of these stereo views were created from photos and images returned by NASA astronauts and unmanned space probes.
An introduction to helioseismology, which is the study of wave oscillations in the Sun and of the physical processes involved, in the same way that seismologists learn about the Earth's interior by monitoring waves caused by earthquakes. Temperature, composition, and motions deep in the Sun influence the oscillation periods and yield insights into conditions in the solar interior.
Photographs, maps and information on tsunamis in recent years, including Papua New Guinea 1998.
Information on the phenomena occasionally observed at sunrise and sunset when a part of the sun suddenly changes colour. Includes photographs, simulations, explanations, advice on how best to see one, and facts debunking common misconceptions about green flashes. Also contains an annotated bibliography on green flashes, mirages, and other low sun phenomena.
Information on the solar eclipse of August 11th 1999 from a UK perspective. Includes information on viewing the eclipse safely, the science behind the eclipse, maps of the path of the eclipse and images of previous solar eclipses.
Animations, images and descriptions of the Sun, planets, moons, comets and asteroids. Also covers rocketry, early astronauts, history of space exploration, space missions, and spacecraft.
Links to resources about each of the planets, the sun, comets, and asteroids.
An illustrated guide to the sun, describing solar wind, solar flares, solar surface, and sunspots.
The ISTP is a collaborative effort between NASA, the European Space Agency (ESA), and the Institute of Space and Astronautical Science. Project is to investigate the Sun
Earth space environment. Includes information for scientists and the public about the project, mission schedules and reports, ISTP programs, and links to related sites.
General information about tsunamis, which are large water waves typically generated by seismic activity. Offers information about the mechanisms of tsunami generation and propagation, the impact of tsunamis on humankind and the tsunami warning system.
