Beschreibung

This is the only book solely about Jupiter's moon Io, the most volcanically active body in the solar system. Written by experts in the field, many of whom took part in the Galileo mission, the book reviews the basics about Io and its unique space environment. Coverage includes all subjects, where the Galilio mission has shed new light on, with some emphasis on Io's most remarkable characteristics: its active volcanism.


From the reviews:

"Io after Galileo: A New View of Jupiter's Volcanic Moon is the first book dedicated to this unique satellite, and it does justice to Io's dubious charms. a thoughtful collection of articles ranging from the history of Io exploration through the satellite's remarkable and hostile surface geology to its interaction with the harsh Jovian environment. The well-written chapters contain thorough references and will appeal to college-level students. an excellent reference on Io and a worthy addition to any planetary scientist's bookshelf." (Louise Prockter, The Journal of Geology, March, 2008)



Klappentext

Jupiter's moon Io is the Solar System's most exotic satellite. Active volcanism on Io was discovered from observations by the Voyager 1 spacecraft in 1979, confirming a possibility suggested from theoretical studies of Io's orbit. Our knowledge of Io's volcanism, composition, and space environment were significantly increased as a result of observations by the Galileo spacecraft from 1996 through 2001. The end of the Galileo mission in 2003 makes this an ideal time to summarize the new results in a book as no book has ever been written about Jupiter's volcanic moon, Io.
