  • Physics of Cometsby K.S. Krishna Swamy

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2010; US$ 95.00

    This revised edition places a unique emphasis on all the new results from ground-based, satellites and space missions - detection of molecule H2 and prompt emission lines of OH for the first time; discovery of X-rays in comets; observed diversity in chemical composition among comets; the puzzle of the constancy of spin temperature; the well-established... more...

  • The Physics of Interstellar Dustby Endrik Krugel

    CRC Press 2002; US$ 253.00

    Interstellar dust grains catalyse chemical reactions, absorb, scatter, polarise and re-radiate starlight and constitute the building blocks for the formation of planets. Understanding this interstellar component is therefore of primary importance in many areas of astronomy & astrophysics. For example, observers need to understand how dust effects light... more...

  • Physics of the Interstellar and Intergalactic Mediumby Bruce T. Draine

    Princeton University Press 2010; US$ 82.50

    This is a comprehensive and richly illustrated textbook on the astrophysics of the interstellar and intergalactic medium--the gas and dust, as well as the electromagnetic radiation, cosmic rays, and magnetic and gravitational fields, present between the stars in a galaxy and also between galaxies themselves. Topics include radiative processes... more...

  • Principles of Meteoriticsby E.L. Krinov; Earl Ingerson

    Elsevier Science 2013; US$ 93.95

    Principles of Meteoritics examines the significance of meteorites in relation to cosmogony and to the origin of the planetary system. The book discusses the science of meteoritics and the sources of meteorites. Scientists study the morphology of meteorites to determine their motion in the atmosphere. The scope of such study includes all forms of... more...

  • Stardust From Meteoritesby Maria Lugaro

    World Scientific Publishing Company 2005; US$ 62.00

    The study of presolar meteoritic grains is a new inter-disciplinary field that brings together topics from nuclear physics to astronomy and chemistry. Traditionally, most of the information about the cosmos has been gathered by observing light through telescopes. However, with the recent discovery that some dust grains extracted from primitive meteorites... more...

  • The Tungus Event, or The Great Siberian Meteoriteby John Engledew

    Algora Publishing 2010; US$ 21.95

    Something  exploded above Siberia in 1908 and no one is quite sure what ? or  why. What burned 830 square miles of forest and some 30 million trees on a fine summer's morning? This book combines a hard popular science approach and lively description of the "Tungus event", giving the reader the stories of... more...

  • Advances in Meteoroid and Meteor Scienceby J. M. Trigo-Rodriguez; J.M. Trigo-Rodriguez; Frans J.M. Rietmeijer; Frans J.M. Rietmeijer; J. Llorca; Jordi Llorca; D. Janches; D. Janches

    Springer New York 2008; US$ 249.00

    This volume is a compilation of articles that summarize the most recent results in meteor, meteoroid and related fields presented at the Meteoroids 2007 conference held at the impressive CosmoCaixa Science Museum in Barcelona, Spain. The conference took place between the 11th and the 15th of June and was organized by the Institute of Space Sciences... more...

  • Astrophysics of the Interstellar Mediumby Walter Maciel

    Springer New York 2013; US$ 129.00

    The space between the stars contains objects in which physical processes occur that are fundamental to galaxies. This book examines these processes and presents simple numeric estimates of the main quantities relevant to the  interstellar medium. more...

  • Australia's Meteorite Cratersby Alex Bevan; Peter Murray

    Western Australian Museum 2013; US$ 9.95

    On Earth, catastrophic impact of an asteroid or comet with truly global consequences has not happened during our written history, and the threat seems very small. Giant scars on our planet’s surface are relics of an impact history stretching back more than 2 billion years, and there is no assurance it cannot happen again. In Australia there are... more...

  • Catalogue of Meteorites from South Americaby Rogelio Daniel Acevedo; Maximiliano C.L. Rocca; Víctor Manuel García

    Springer International Publishing 2013; US$ 54.99

    The first Catalogue of Meteorites from South America includes new specimens never previously reported , while doubtful cases and pseudometeorites have been deliberately omitted. The falling of these objects is a random event, but the sites where old meteorites are found tend to be focused in certain areas, e.g. in the deflation surfaces in Chile?s... more...
