The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the SunBook - 2001
The Sun is our powerhouse, sustaining life on Earth. It energizes our planet and fuels the engine of life. Its warmth drives our weather, lifting water from the seas and producing winds that drive clouds over the continents. The Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Sun is a fundamental, up-to-date reference source of information about the Sun, from basic material to detailed concepts. The many full-colour figures and photographs throughout the book help to make all the information highly accessible. The text is organized in a thematic way, with chapters on the properties of the Sun as a star and its place in the Galaxy and the Universe. There are chapters that deal with the science of the Sun's interior and its visible disk, and what makes it shine. The work also covers solar flares and the solar wind, and their impact on the Earth.
