Volume 9, 2014


This special issue of Sun and Geosphere Journal contains selected papers on Heliosphere and Cosmic Rays, Ionosphere, Thermosphere and Mesosphere, Climate Studies, Data Analysis and Image Processing Methods, Atmospheric Physics, Space Weather Modeling and Space Weather Effects on Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS), as well as follow-up projects in astronomy.

Originally, these papers were presented at the United Nations/Ecuador Workshop on the International Space Weather Initiative (ISWI) organized by the United Nations and the Quito Astronomical Observatory of National Polytechnic School. The Workshop was held in Quito, from 8 to 12 October 2012, in particular for the benefit of countries in Latin America and the Caribbean. Additionally, as a valuable result of this workshop, the Solar Physics Phenomena Division was established at the Ecuadorian Astronomical Observatory, where the Earth's atmosphere and its interaction with the Sun studies are carried out in close collaboration with academic institutions of Japan, Brazil and the United States.

The purpose of these proceedings is to introduce the most recent studies carried out in space science, space weather modeling and forecasting to students and the scientific community at large in contribution to the future development of space science. Although some time has elapsed since the 2012 ISWI Workshop, the papers presented in these proceedings continue to be relevant.

We hope that the space weather space science schools and the workshops will continue in the future strengthening existing research projects and fostering new research studies to help us to precise the foreground knowledge and understanding the complex phenomena that occur in the natural environment to which we belong.

From the Editor-in-Chief

This edition of Nigerian Journal of Space Research is dedicated to the International Heliophysical Year IHY African Regional School, which was held at Enugu, Nigeria from 10th to 22th November, 2009. The School was hosted by NASRDA Centre for Basic Space Science on behalf of Nigerian government.

This volume consists of peer-reviewed lecture notes from various instructors, who participated in the school. The topics covered during the school were in areas of Space Science known as heliospace and geospace. The School also featured hands-on laboratory classes on Mathlab. AFRIS2009 was poised at setting the pace for intensive capacity building in Space Science and Technology in Africa - an aim that was greatly achieved.
