Part of the Astrophysics and Space Science Proceedings book series (ASSSP, volume 33)


Plasma heliogeophysics is a relatively new and important field of research which deals with problems stemming from processes taking place in cosmic space and described in terms of electrodynamics and plasma physics. It is relevant to diverse topics such as the physics of the Sun, solar wind, heliosphere, terrestrial magnetosphere and ionosphere, solar-terrestrial relations, the dusty (complex) plasma, the fundamental concepts of plasma physics, etc. Recently it has been shown that fine nano- and micro-meter sized electrically charged particulates from the interplanetary space and from the Earth’s environments can affect the local properties as well as the diagnostics of the interplanetary, magnetospheric, ionospheric, and terrestrial complex plasmas. In this paper the sources of the charged dust particulates and some nonlinear dusty plasma effects in cosmic space and Earth environments are examined.
