About the Authors
  • This comprehensive volume authoritatively describes our understanding of the complex and fascinating jovian system. Written by a team of world experts, it brings together every aspect of the giant planetary system, from the deep interior of Jupiter to the distant tiny satellites and swarms of escaping gas and dust. Chapters present a synthesis of experimental data from the Voyager, Galileo and Cassini missions, from telescopes on the ground and in space, and from theoretical models on the different components that make up the Jupiter system. This book is a valuable introduction for graduate students and an indispensable resource for all researchers in planetary science.

    • A complete and up-to-date summary of our understanding of the entire Jupiter System
    • Each chapter written by leading authorities in the field
    • Additional electronic resources are available at http://lasp.colorado.edu/JUPITER
