1 2 J. LILENSTEN , A. GLOVER , A. HILGERS, A. BELEHAKI, Lj. R. CANDER, B. ZOLESI, M. RYCROFT, AND F. LEFEUVRE 1 Chair of ESWW2, editor 2 co-Chair of ESWW2 This book presents Space Weather review papers given as invited presentations at the Second European Space Weather week which was held at the European Space Agency's ESTEC site in Noordwijk, The Netherlands, from 14th to 19th November, 2005. As the meeting itself, it is divided into 5 chapters, each representing one of the "Science to Applications" sessions on a particular theme. These themes are: . Session 1 : The solar weather/solar activity forecast and predictions (including propagation of transient features in the solar wind) . Session 2 : Atmospheres (weather and climate, also including thermosphere and drag), global change . Session 3 : Ionosphere/positioning and telecommunication . Session 4 : Radiation environment of the Earth/spacecraft and aircraft environment . Session 5 : Magnetic environment/GIC's and other ground effects Each chapter is divided into an introduction written by the convener of the corresponding session, and the papers written by the invited speakers. Many of the poster contributions, including applications focussed papers, have been published elsewhere and the presentation material can be found via the ESWW2 website: http://www. esa-spaceweather. net/spweather/workshops/eswwII/ esww2-proceedings. html. The ESWW2 was the second in a series of annual workshops that are the result of much patient work that started about ten years ago involving many European entities.
Myself, the editor of the book, I am the chair of the largest project on space weather, gathering 26 countries. I am a permanent researcher at CNRS - Laboratoire de Planétologie de Grenoble. I study space weather at Earth, but also at other planets (Mars, Jupiter, Venus, Titan). I published more than 50 scientific papers on these topic...

Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is a most interesting and valuable book for the interdisciplinary community working collaboratively on space weather topics, both on research and applications, in Europe. . All in all, this is a very useful compilation of the present state of knowledge on the science and applications of space weather. It is a fine resource for those entering the field or those already active in it. It should be on the shelves of all libraries which cover geophysics, in the widest sense of that world" (M. J. Rycroft, Surveys in Geophysics, Vol. 28, 2007)
