Bright auroral displays during dark polar nights belong certainly to the most mem- orable natural phenomena a person can experience. In addition to their emotional impression, the auroral phenomena have excited the curiosity of scientists since the days of Galileo. The rapid expansion of our capacity to observe the auroral processes, both remotely and in situ, has provided an enormous amount of data, which we are trying to organize and explain in the present book. With a better understanding, we can enjoy the beauty of aurorae in a much deeper sense, just like music opens for those who are willing to invest their time to understand the structure and dynamics of the musical system.
