Book Description

This book provides a comprehensive toolbox of analysis techniques forionospheric multi-satellite missions. The immediate need for this volume was motivatedby the ongoing ESA Swarm satellite mission, but the tools that are described are generaland can be used for any future ionospheric multi-satellite mission with comparableinstrumentation.

In addition to researching the immediate plasma environment and its coupling to otherregions, such a mission aims to study the Earth's main magnetic field and its anomaliescaused by core, mantle, or crustal sources. The parameters for carrying out this kindof work are examined in these chapters. Besides currents, electric fields, and plasmaconvection, these parameters include ionospheric conductance, Joule heating, neutralgas densities, and neutral winds.

Linear Selection Indices in Modern Plant Breeding
This book focuses on the linear selection index (LSI) theory and its statistical properties. It addresses the single-stage LSI theory by assuming that economic weights are fixed and known - or fixed, but unknown - to predict the net genetic merit in the phenotypic, marker and genomic context. Further, it shows how to combine the LSI theory with the...
