Title:Alien Seas [electronic resource] : Oceans in Space
Author(s): Michael Carroll

Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York : Imprint: Springer
Size:1 online resource

Note:In the early days of planetary observation, oceans were thought to exist in all corners of the Solar System. Carbonated seas percolated beneath the clouds of Venus. Features on the Moon's surface were given names such as theBay of Rainbows and the Oc ean of Storms. With the advent of modern telescopes and spacecraft exploration these ancient concepts of planetary seas have been replaced by the reality of something even more exotic. Alien Seas servesup the current research, past beliefs, and new theori es to offer a rich array of the seas on other worlds. It is organized by location and by the material composing the oceans under discussion, with expert authors penning chapterson their specialty. Each chapter features new original art depicting alien sea s, as well as the latest ground-based and spacecraft images. With the contributors as guides, readers can explore the wild seas of Jupiter's waterysatellite Europa, believed similar in composition to battery acid. Saturn's planet-sized moon Titan seems to be subject to methane or ethane rainfall that become vast lakes and, perhaps, seasonal oceans. Titan and Mars have seas ofsand, large shifting dunes covering huge plains, while Venus may have oceans of frozen lava. The possibilities are excitingly endles s and ripe for exploration.

Title:The Earth as a Distant Planet [electronic resource] A Rosetta Stone for the Search of Earth-Like Worlds

Date:2010
Publisher:New York, NY : Springer New York

Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Is the Earth, in some way, special? Or is our planet but one of the millions of other inhabited planets within our galaxy? This is an exciting time to be asking this old question, because for the first time in history, the answeris within reach. In T he Earth as a Distant Planet, the authors set themselves as external observers of our Solar System from an astronomical distance. From that perspective, the authors describe how the Earth, the third planet indistance to the central star, can be catalogued as having its own unique features and as capable of sustaining life. The knowledge gained from this original perspective is then applied to the ongoing search for planets outside thesolar system, or exoplanets. Since the discovery in 1992 of the first ex oplanet, the number of known planets has increased exponentially. Ambitious space missions are already being designed for the characterization of their atmospheresand to explore the possibility that they host life. The exploration of Earth and the rest of the rocky planets in our Solar System will help us in classifying and understanding the multiplicity of planetary systems that exist in ourgalaxy. In time, statistics on the formation and evolution of exoplanets will be available and will provide vital i nformation for solving some of the unanswered questions about the formation, as well as the evolution, of our own world.The authors provide an introductory but also very much up-to-date referenced text, making this book useful not only for the layman, but also for researchers and advanced students in Astrophysics and Earth Sciences

Title:The Heliosphere through the Solar Activity Cycle [electronic resource]

Date:2008
Publisher:Berlin, Heidelberg : Springer Berlin Heidelberg
Size:1 online resource
Note:Springer e-book platform
Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:Understanding how the Sun changes though its 11-year sunspot cycle and how these changes affect the vast space around the Sun the heliosphere has been one of the principal objectives of space research since the advent ofthe space age. This book pre sents the evolution of the heliosphere through an entire solar activity cycle. The last solar cycle (cycle 23) has been the best observed from both the Earth and from a fleet of spacecraft. Of these, thejoint ESA-NASA Ulysses probe has provided continuous observations of the state of the heliosphere since 1990 from a unique vantage point, that of a nearly polar orbit around the Sun. Ulysses results affect our understanding of theheliosphere from the interior of the Sun to the interstellar medium - beyond the outer boundary of the heliosphere. Written by scientists closely associated with the Ulysses mission, the book describes and explains the many differentaspects of changes in the heliosphere in response to solar activity. In particular, the authors des cribe the rise in solar activity from the last minimum in solar activity in 1996 to its maximum in 2000 and the subsequent decline inactivity

Title:The Outer Planets and their Moons [electronic resource] Comparative Studies of the Outer Planets prior to the Exploration of the Saturn System by Cassini-Huygens

Note:Springer 2013 e-book collections
Note:This volume gives an integrated summary of the science related to the four giant planets in our solar system. It is the result of an ISSI workshop on A comparative study of the outer planets before the exploration of Saturn byCassini-Huygens which wa s held at ISSI in Bern on January 12-16, 2004. Representatives of several scientific communities, such as planetary scientists, astronomers, space physicists, chemists and astrobiologists have met with the aimto review the knowledge on four major themes: (1) the study of the formation and evolution processes of the outer planets and their satellites, beginning with the formation of compounds and planetesimals in the solar nebula, and thesubsequent evolution of the interiors of the outer planets, (2) a com parative study of the atmospheres of the outer planets and Titan, (3) the study of the planetary magnetospheres and their interactions with the solar wind, and (4)the formation and properties of satellites and rings, including their interiors, surfaces, a nd their interaction with the solar wind and the magnetospheres of the outer planets. Beyond these topics, the implications for the prebioticchemical evolution on Europa and Titan are reviewed. The volume is intended to provide active researchers in the f ields of planetary and solar system science, space plasma physics, and astrobiology with an up-to-date status report onthe topic, and also to serve graduate students with introductory material into the field. At the time of publication of this book, the s tudy of the outer planets is particularly motivated by the fact that the Saturn system is beinginvestigated by the Cassini-Huygens mission.
