About the Authors
  • How do planetary scientists analyze and interpret data from laboratory, telescopic, and spacecraft observations of planetary surfaces? What elements, minerals, and volatiles are found on the surfaces of our Solar System's planets, moons, asteroids, and comets? This comprehensive volume answers these topical questions by providing an overview of the theory and techniques of remote compositional analysis of planetary surfaces. Bringing together eminent researchers in Solar System exploration, it describes state-of-the-art results from spectroscopic, mineralogical, and geochemical techniques used to analyze the surfaces of planets, moons, and small bodies. The book introduces the methodology and theoretical background of each technique, and presents the latest advances in space exploration, telescopic and laboratory instrumentation, and major new work in theoretical studies. This engaging volume provides a comprehensive reference on planetary surface composition and mineralogy for advanced students, researchers, and professional scientists.

    • Provides comprehensive insight into surface composition of bodies in our Solar System, including the latest results from recent and current planetary missions
    • Presents laboratory measurement techniques and spectra for numerous rocks and minerals (including ices and organics), providing a useful source of spectral properties and lab data for those analyzing data from current and upcoming missions
    • Includes detailed discussions of field applications and analysis methods, benefitting readers applying spectroscopic and geochemical methods to complex systems
    • Covers theoretical background information for several types of spectroscopy and other remote sensing techniques, as well as data analysis procedures for new instruments, allowing a fundamental understanding of a wide variety of methods
