|The area of SolarTerrestrial Relations has played a decisive role in the growth of
Astrophysics and Space Science since 150 years. More recently, it has developed very much
due to new observational possibilities, at a distance and in situ, and very considerable
advancement in computer simulation. The area has also become of very great social interest,
due to the effects of space weather on communication and other technical systems, and
possible climate effects.
In this development several Nordic research groups play important roles. However, the
Nordic potential to contribute decisively to this research in a coherent way seems still greater,
in view of the fact that leading research is made here in all aspects of the area, from basic
solar studies to solarwind research, space physics exploration, studies of the Earth upper
atmosphere, as well as the study of other planetarysystem atmospheres and their interaction
with the solar wind.
