Handbook of Radiation Belts: Physics Throughout the Solar System provides a comprehensive overview of radiation belt processes throughout the solar system in a single book, compiling all information relevant to radiation belts in one place. It features an overview of radiation belts of each applicable planet in the Solar System to assist researchers working on individual radiation belt physics, particularly of comparative or multiplanetary scope. The handbook goes on to offer a detailed guide to basics such as measurement and particle motion to more advanced topics such as radial transport and associated acceleration. It provides the respective theory behind the physics as well as detailed derivations, with worked examples and case studies, allowing readers to follow the implementation of the theory behind the science to apply in their research.

The Handbook of Radiation Belts covers all relevant topics to radiation belts in our Solar System in one complete source, offering researchers, academics and students in space physics a complete guide to the topic for those performing fundamental research and teaching, as well as professionals planning and operating space missions or assets.
