Bulletin of the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory: Vol. 100 now available
  This volume of the Bulletin publishes the Proceedings of the Conference "Sun and Space Weather," which was held at the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory in June, 2003. The Conference was held in honor of the 90th anniversary of the birth of Academician A. B. Severnyi, a former Director of the Observatory who contributed much to the study of solar flares, solar and stellar magnetic fields and who was one of the first investigators of helioseismology.
  Contents of Vol. 100
  • Effects of magnetic field inclination in simple sunspots.
  • Plasma acceleration above a sunspot umbra.
  • The small-scale magnetic field structure in active regions.
  • Low-frequency oscillations in the solar photosphere: ground data and some SOHO satellite measurements.
  • Semiempirical models for the photosphere in a solar flare-active region.
  • Long-period variations in solar-spectrum Fraunhofer line parameters.

Seismic Instruments: Vol. 40 now available
  Seismic Instruments Vol. 40 contains articles on geophysical instruments used in seismological research, including descriptions of their construction, working elements and technical specifications. Throughout there is an emphasis on geophysical monitoring with application of methods to search for earthquake precursors, to study earthquake preparation processes and to monitor natural and technogenic processes. Included are interpretations of results of instrument implementation.
