- SHINE Home Page - (Solar,
Heliospheric, and INterplanetary Environment)
SHINE is an affiliation of researchers within the solar, interplanetary, and
heliospheric communities, dedicated to promoting an enhanced understanding of the
processes by which energy in the form of magnetic fields and
particles are produced by the Sun and/or accelerated in interplanetary space
and on the mechanisms by which these fields and particles are transported to the Earth through the inner heliosphere.
