وصف كتب مصر
Planetary Science is an exciting, fast-moving, interdisciplinary field with
courses taught in a wide range of departments, including astronomy, physics,
chemistry, earth sciences and biology. Planets and Planetary Systems is a
well-written, concise introductory textbook on the science of planets within
our own and other solar systems.
Keeping mathematics to a minimum, assuming only a rudimentary knowledge of
calculus, the book begins with a description of the basic properties of the
planets in our solar systems, and then moves on to compare them with what is
known about planets in other solar systems. It continues by looking at the
surfaces, interiors and atmospheres of the planets and then covers the dynamics
and origin of planetary systems. The book closes with a look at the role of
life in planetary systems.
· An accessible, concise introduction to planets and planetary systems
· Uses insights from all the disciplines underlying planetary science
· Incorporates results from recent planetary space missions, such as
Cassini to Saturn and a number of missions to Mars
· Well illustrated throughout, including a colour plate section
Planets and Planetary Systems is invaluable to students taking courses in
planetary science across a wide range of disciplines and of interest to
researchers and many keen amateur astronomers, needing an up-to-date
introduction to this exciting subject.
