The bibliography that follows lists both articles that discuss EUV imaging of the plasmasphere within the broader context of magnetospheric imaging techniques and those that deal specifically with the structure and dynamics of the plasmasphere. It is a selected bibliography. References to additional relevant studies can be found in the reference lists of the papers included here. Entries marked with an asterisk offer particularly useful introductions to the topics of the plasmasphere and plasmaspheric imaging.
