The book covers the field of solar system astrophysics beginning with basic tools of spherical astronomy and coordinate frames and celestial mechanics. It therefore presents equations and derivations starting from a level that permits one to see the underlying physical ideas. An up-to-date overview on all essential topics is presented, but is concise where possible. The text is based on extensive experience in the classroom and its contents have been field-tested by students for years. The material has been updated in the last few months to take advantage of the newer discoveries of the Mars Rover and the Saturn Cassini missions.…mehr

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"The authors meld concepts of geology and chemistry with astronomy to address planetary atmospheres at all levels and meteorology. … The book explores atmospheric structure, ionization, and particle environments and includes very complete descriptions of satellites and ring structure, comets, meteors, meteorites, and asteroids. … This … is extremely thorough, up-to-date, and one of the best places to go for a handy reference on solar system topics. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through professionals." (W. E. Howard III, Choice, Vol. 46 (8), April, 2009)

From the book reviews: "As a textbook I found it excellent. Although I've taken master's level courses on astronomy at the university there was a lot of interesting content, and what I loved the most, were the 'Challenges' at the end of each chapter - mostly problems where you need to calculate something or derive an equation. ... If you want a detailed account of the inner solar system, I think this is the book to dive into." (Kadri Tinn, AstroMadness.com, January, 2015) "This second edition ... provides 'new insights' on the topic and contains additional material on the sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and other areas. ... The writing is lucid and the discussions are easy to follow. This valuable addition to college libraries will also be welcome on the bookshelf of anyone with an interest in the solar system. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above." (A. Spero, Choice, Vol. 52 (1), September, 2014)
