The outbreak of SARS (Severe acute respiration syndrome), an abnormal pneumonia, has obtained a lot awareness and insurance by means of the media and has hence had a excessive effect at the public. The infectivity and direction of transmission of the illness look strange, and it became out to be a hugely suitable possibility for scientific employees.

This monograph offers accomplished info at the most up-to-date insights into the SARS epidemic and the accountable infectious agent. heritage info on Coronaviridae (coronavirus/torovirus) and coronavirus/torovirus-associated infections in people and animals can be given.

The quantity may be a invaluable resource of knowledge for researchers and clinicians in virology, epidemiology and biomedicine.

The peak-to peak values in seasonal variations diminish in the solar cycle minimum, as well as the amplitude of the daily variations. Also observed are latitudinal changes with the solar cycle. According to Intercosmos-19 and Cosmos 1809 topside sounding satellites data, the equatorial anomaly persists during nighttime in high solar activity conditions while during the low solar activity it disappears (Pulinets et al. 1989). The next temporal scale in the ionospheric variability is the seasonal variations.

1998). Some inconsistence in the parameters measured experimentally and that which is expected from the model forced researchers to look for other elements of the global electric circuit, and we believe that seismo-ionospheric coupling through the atmospheric electric field is one of the missing details. It will be shown later that the processes in the air over seismically active areas are very similar to those in thunderstorm clouds, including the charge separation and the large-scale intensive electric field generation.

The main difference between the F2-layer and other ionospheric layers is that the ionization loss velocity is proportional to the ion concentration when in other layers it is proportional to the square of the concentration. The lifetime of the O+ ions is comparable and at the peak is higher than characteristic transport time which leads to the ionospheric maximum formation. The layer is formed during the daytime, and during the nighttime rapidly decreases, but the plasma density is supported by the ambipolar diffusion which conserves the shape and the maximum peak altitude, but with decreased density.
