In addition to reviewing progress made to date in understanding the three-dimensional structure and dynamics of the heliosphere, this volume also looks ahead to the scientific return expected from Ulysses Mission scheduled for launch in mid-1986.
The joint ESA/NASA mission will provide the first in-situ measurements of the inner heliosphere, thereby literally adding a new dimension to our understanding of the only stellar plasmasphere to which we have direct access. The importance of such global measurements can be readily appreciated if we consider the marked asymmetry in the solar corona (and by association, also in the solar wind flow) revealed by coronograph images, particularly at times of minimum solar activity.
The papers contained in the volume deal with aspects of the corona, its influence on the interplanetary medium via transient ejecta, the solar wind, energetic solar particles and galactic cosmic rays, interplanetary dust and interstellar gas which have a bearing on the global properties of the heliosphere. Also included is a description of the scientific aims and implementation of the Ulysses Mission.
