This publication is an ordered choice of educational lectures at the actual strategies within the polar higher surroundings given on the NATO complicated research Institute (ASI) on "The Exploration of the Polar higher surroundings" held at Lillehammer, Norway, could 5-16, 1980. The polar cap is a vital a part of the excessive range surroundings not just as a result of move and horizontal trans­ port within the impartial surroundings and convection within the ionosphere, but additionally due to its distinctive power resources and sinks. furthermore, sun wind plasma is led into-the top surroundings by way of the geomagnetic box on the poles, and the polar cap is, as acknowledged via instructional chief Roederer during this quantity, "the position the place outer house meets earth". the ambience at reduce latitudes is famous to the ground-based observer, and the arrival of satellite tv for pc observations used to be easily the start of a brand new viewpoint. The exploration of the ambience at polar latitudes, notwithstanding, proceeded in on the contrary demeanour, and satellite tv for pc maps of the polar caps should be in comparison with a comparatively meagre set of ground-based information. fresh efforts to increase the polar observations from the floor have ended in the necessity for a assessment of the actual ideas and methods taking place within the polar higher surroundings. The interdisciplinary nature of those efforts resulted in the emphasis the following on an educational program.

The 5 Symposia on Advances in Tracer technique have been held every year from 1957 to 1961. The symposia have been directed to scientists who're energetic in using tracer thoughts to aid remedy their medical difficulties. The structure, a casual one-day assembly including approximately ten papers and shutting with a cocktail hour, fostered an lively alternate of knowledge between audio system and viewers.
