Abstract

Major and most significant results are presented of the outer space project CORONAS-F in the frame of which observations of solar activity and its effects on the Earth were carried out from July 2001 to December 2005. With the use of remote observation devices, the localization and morphology of solar activity in the second half of the 23rd solar cycle was studied and high-temperature plasma formation in the solar crown, eruptive phenomena, particle acceleration processes, atomic and nuclear processes in solar flares were detected and studied. Solar activity manifestations in the circumterrestrial space, the dynamics of the Earth radiation belts and reconstruction of the magnetosphere structure in the periods of magnetic storms caused by active processes in the Sun were studied with the use of "solar cosmic rays" complex. Results related to the upper atmosphere of the Earth and helio seismology are given as well.
