ISWI Newsletter - Vol.2 No.49
Dear ISWI Participant:
25 June 2010
The attached pdf is an obituary on Valery Troitskaya (1917-2010)
and appeared in AGU Eos
(Vol. 91, No. 16, 20 April 2010).
A large chunk of space weather research involves a global effort
to better understand the Earth's magnetosphere and its dynamics.
In this regard, her contribution is large. Around the
time of IGY, she developed a system of names for different
types of magnetic pulsations. She coined the terms
"Pc"(pulsation continuous) and "Pi"(pulsation irregular),
for example. For more details, see attached pdf.
It is notable that she established several magnetic
observatories throughout Russia. So she did not just use data,
but she also "delivered" data to the scientific community.
