Coronal Mass Ejections (CMEs) - Cover text: Over the past ten years, results from a new generation of solar space missions have become available. Based on those missions and observations made at many wavelengths, from hard X-rays, soft X-rays, extreme UV and radio wavelengths, this book is a comprehensive introduction to solar physics. It describes the solar corona, and sets it in the context of basic plasma physics before moving on to discuss plasma instabilities, plasma heating, magnetic reconnection and particle acceleration processes. The latest results on coronal heating and radiation - fundamental processes in all stars - are presented. Spectacular phenomena, such as solar flares and coronal mass ejections, are described in detail.
