The High Latitude Heliosphere
The Symposium on which the present book is based focused on out-of-ecliptic results obtained by the highly successful Ulysses mission prior to the start of its first polar pass. Topics addressed include the solar corona, the large-scale structure of the solar wind and heliosphere, energetic particles and cosmic rays, and interstellar gas and cosmic dust. The papers published here provide an up-to-date account of our understanding of the three-dimensional structure of the heliosphere near solar minimum.
Particular emphasis is placed on in-situ measurements made by Ulysses covering the range of solar latitudes from the Equator to 50° South.
