TitleThe planet observer's handbook
Author(s)Fred W. Price
EditionSecond edition
Description1 online resource (xvii, 429 pages) : digital, PDF file(s)
Abstract NoteThis is an informative, up-to-date and well-illustrated guide to planetary observations for amateurs. After a brief description of the solar system and a chapter on the celestial sphere, readers are shown how to choose, test and use a telescope with various accessories and how to make observations and record results. For each planet and the asteroids, details are given of observational techniques, together with suggestions for how to make contributions of scientific value. From a general description and detailed observational history of each planet, observers can anticipate what they should see and assess their own observations. The chapter on planetary photography includes the revolutionary use of videography, charge coupled devices and video-assisted drawing. There are also chapters on making maps and planispheres and on photoelectric photometry

TitleElectrifying atmospheres : charging, ionisation and lightning in the solar system and beyond
Author(s)Karen L. Aplin
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource
Abstract NoteElectrical processes take place in all planetary atmospheres. There is evidence for lightning on Venus, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune, it is possible on Mars and Titan, and cosmic rays ionise every atmosphere, leading to charged droplets and particles. Controversy surrounds the role of atmospheric electricity in physical climate processes on Earth; here, a comparative approach is employed to review the role of electrification in the atmospheres of other planets and their moons. This book reviews the theory, and, where available, measurements, of planetary atmospheric electricity, taken t

TitleOrigin and evolution of planetary atmospheres : implications for habitability
Author(s)Helmut Lammer
PublicationBerlin, Springer, 2013.
Description1 online resource : ill. (some col.)
Abstract NoteBased on the author's own work and results obtained by international teams he coordinated, this SpringerBrief offers a concise discussion of the origin and early evolution of atmospheres of terrestrial planets during the active phase of their host stars, as well as of the environmental conditions which are necessary in order for planets like the Earth to obtain N_2-rich atmospheres. Possible thermal and non-thermal atmospheric escape processes are discussed in a comparative way between the planets in the Solar System and exoplanets. Lastly, a hypothesis for how to test and study the discussed atmosphere evolution theories using future UV transit observations of terrestrial exoplanets within the orbits of dwarf stars is presented

TitleWater in the universe
Author(s)Arnold Hanslmeier
PublicationDordrecht, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (xiv, 239 p.) : ill. (some col.), maps
Abstract NoteDue to its specific chemical and physical properties, water is essential for life on Earth. And it is assumed that this would be the case for extraterrestrial life as well. Therefore it is important to investigate where water can be found in the Universe. Although there are places that are completely dry, places where the last rainfall happened probably several 100 million years ago, surprisingly this substance is quite omnipresent. In the outer solar system the large satellites of Jupiter and Saturn are covered by a thick layer of ice that could be hiding a liquid ocean below. This of course

Titlehunt for planet X : new worlds and the fate of Pluto
Author(s)Govert Schilling
PublicationNew York, Copernicus Books, 2009.
Description1 online resource (xiii, 303 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteThe Hunt for Planet X: New Worlds and the Fate of Pluto goes beyond a standard scientific read, encompassing who, and what, is involved in the pursuit of planetary endeavors. Touching on over three hundred years of debates, debacles and discoveries, this book offers the reader insight into the minds and motives of planetary astronomers and their findings. The "hunt" continues to the outer-most regions of the solar system, and Govert Schilling states this search will not cease: "Astronomy is an adventurous science," he writes, and without adventure and those who seek it out the universe would otherwise remain mysterious. The real-life characters presented in The Hunt for Planet X look for glimpses of light in the dark, from icy Kuiper Belt objects to full-fledged planets, in the process challenging how such worlds should be defined and ultimately describing the Universe. This book is written for astronomy and space enthusiasts and people who want to understand how astronomy discoveries are made in reality. - Publisher
