The concept of summerschools and workshops at the Kanzelho¨he Solar
Observatory, Ka¨rnten, Austria, devoted to up-to-date topics in solar physics
has been proven to be extremely successful, and thus in August/September
2003 the third combined summerschool and workshop was held there.
This book contains the proceedings of the Summerschool and Workshop
“Solar Magnetic Phenomena” held from 25 August to 5 September
2003 at the Solar Observatory Kanzelho¨he, which belongs to the Institute
for Geophysics, Astrophysics and Meteorology of the University of Graz,
This book consists of a selection of original papers of the leading scientists in the fields of Space and Planetary Physics, Solar and Space Plasma Physics with important contributions to the theory, modeling and experimental techniques of the solar wind exploration.
Wind energy is one of the most prominent renewable energy sources today. The
increasing concerns with environmental issues are driving the search for more
sustainable electrical sources. Wind energy along with solar energy, biomass and wave
energy are possible solutions for environmentally friendly energy production. The
initialization of wind power installation, which started in the beginning of 1980s, is
very much related to the oil crises of the mid 1970s.
Dane Thorson, Cargo-master-apprentice of the Solar Queen, Galactic
Free Trader spacer, Terra registry, stood in the middle of the ship's
cramped bather while Rip Shannon, assistant Astrogator and his senior
in the Service of Trade by some four years, applied gobs of highly scented
paste to the skin between Dane's rather prominent shoulder blades.
The small cabin was thickly redolent with spicy odors and Rip sniffed
"You're sure going to be about the best smelling Terran who ever set
boot on Sargol's soil," his soft slur of speech ended in a rich chuckle.
