A new book entitled "Cross-Scale Coupling and Energy Transfer in the
Magnetosphere-Ionosphere-Thermosphere System" has been published in
Elsevier. The editors thank all authors of the chapters and community
members who have provided supports to develop this book.


The magnetosphere-ionosphere-thermosphere (M-I-T) coupling system evolves
constantly due to variable energy inputs and complexity of exchange in
mass, momentum and energy. Determining the state of the M-I-T system is an
important objective in the field of our community research because it is a
fundamental science problem when nonlinear coupling occurs across regions
and different spatial and temporal scales. Coupling across multiple scales,
among global (large-scale), regional (meso-scale) and turbulence
(small-scale) domains, is a critical challenge because observational and
modeling capabilities for bridging different scales are quite limited.

This book was motivated by growing interests in the nature and challenges
of the multi-scale M-I-T coupling in the community. Through these community
activities, we realized that this growing area of research does not have a
reference manual that broadly describes key concepts. Thus we decided to
compile such a book in responding to this need. The main theme of this book
is to provide basic concepts, definition, equations, examples on M-I-T
coupling processes across scales. This book is not intended for a
collection of research papers or a thorough literature review. This book
targets not only active research experts but also researchers and students
who would like to learn M-I-T coupling topics. The book also includes
original materials useful for classrooms and tutorials.
