Written for both experimentalists and theorists in the field of magnetospheric physics, the papers collected in this volume offer detailed descriptions of the imaging instruments on board the Image (Imager for Magneto-to-Aurora Global Exploration) spacecraft, and of the innovative modeling and image inversion techniques that will be employed in the interpretation of the data. Also included are chapters on the Image science objectives, the spacecraft design and capabilities, science and mission operations, and processing and distribution of Image's non-proprietary data products.
