About the Authors
  • This book integrates astronomical observations and theories with geophysical studies, presenting a comprehensive overview of the extraterrestrial matter that falls to Earth from space. Meteoroids are the main topic of the book, although cosmic dust, interplanetary matter and meteorites are also discussed. This work is of great value to researchers involved in the study of meteor phenomena.

    • Fully up-to-date coverage of meteor phenomena
    • The first book to integrate astronomical observations and theories with geophysical studies
