Sample Sentences & Example Usage

  1. John Foster:

    Interplanetary shocks, traveling toward Earth from the Sun, have been observed and studied before, what is of major interest in the event reported are the direct observations of the effects of the shock on Earth ’s Van Allen radiation belts with sufficient detail to reveal the processes taking place.
