Bulletin of the Crimean Astrophysical Observatory
Published irregularly, usually one volume per year. The Crimean Astrophysical Observatory is one of the largest scientific research centers in the Former Soviet Union. It possesses modern equipment for astrophysical observations over a wide spectral range from gamma-rays to meter radio waves of stars and galaxies as well as of the Sun and Solar System. The Observatory staff is involved in both ground based and space astrophysics, and the Bulletin is the major outlet for their research results. Articles from the Observatory's five departments (Solar Physics, Physics of Stars and Galaxies, Radioastronomy, Gamma-Ray Astronomy and Experimental Astrophysics) cover such subjects as: Solar observations: sunspots, flares, magnetic fields, solar cycles, chromosphere, helioseismology, Optical and radio telescopes, instruments and methodology of astronomic measurements, Planets, asteroids and comets, Interstellar medium and the galaxy, Extragalactic astronomy, Structure and chemical composition of stellar atmospheres, Stellar magnetic fields, Variable stars, Cosmic rays in the Universe, Geodynamics and laser location of satellites. The Observatory has published its Bulletin in Russian since 1947 and the English edition has been available since 1977.
