Publisher's Summary:
The variability of the Sun's magnetic field is the main driver of solar activity. IAU S233 was held to further our understanding of solar magnetic processes and its interplanetary consequences. The Symposium was organised into seven sessions covering: the generation and transport of solar magnetic fields; magnetic fields and coupling processes in the solar atmosphere, coronal heating and small-scale dynamics; large-scale coronal structure; the origin and evolution of the solar wind; flares, CMEs and SEPs; and new instrumentation and missions. Each session included contributions by world-wide leading scientists in the form of tutorials, research reviews and presentations of the latest results. A special eighth session was dedicated to educating young national and international astronomers. With reviews and research contributions covering a broad range of disciplines in solar and heliospheric research, this volume is a valuable interdisciplinary resource for professional astronomers and graduate students.
