  • The Solar Eclipse of 2017by Wolfgang Held; Christian Arnim

    Floris Books 2015; US$ 5.82

    On Monday, August 21, 2017, there will be a solar eclipse of the sun visible from large parts of North America, from Oregon across to South Carolina. It will be the first total eclipse visible from mainland US since 1979, and there will not be a significant total eclipse in Europe until 2026. For many westerners, therefore, 2017 is the best opportunity... more...

  • The Sun's Influence on Climateby Joanna D. Haigh; Peter Cargill

    Princeton University Press 2015; US$ 29.95

    The Earth?s climate system depends entirely on the Sun for its energy. Solar radiation warms the atmosphere and is fundamental to atmospheric composition, while the distribution of solar heating across the planet produces global wind patterns and contributes to the formation of clouds, storms, and rainfall. The Sun?s Influence on Climate provides... more...

  • Alpha and Omegaby Charles Seife

    Penguin Publishing Group 2004; US$ 16.00

    Humankind has grappled for millennia with the fundamental questions of the origin and end of the universe--it was a focus of ancient religions and myths and of the inquiries of Aristotle, Galileo, Copernicus, Kepler, and Newton. Today we are at the brink of discoveries that should soon reveal the deepest secrets of the universe. Alpha and Omega is... more...

  • Giant Planets of Our Solar Systemby Patrick G.J. Irwin

    Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. KG 2006; US$ 59.95

    Reviews the state of knowledge of the atmospheres of the giant gaseous planets: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune. This book reviews the theories of their formation and contrasts and compares their observed temperature, composition and cloud structures with simple thermodynamic, radiative transfer and dynamical models. more...

  • Astrophysics is Easy!by Mike Inglis

    Springer 2007; US$ 39.95

    Using a quantitative approach to astrophysics, this book explains the various aspects of astrophysics in simple terms. It features example objects for practical observation at every stage, so that practical astronomers can go and look at the objected or objects under discussion using only commercial amateur equipment. more...

  • Timeby Dennis D. McCarthy; Kenneth P. Seidelmann

    Wiley 2009; US$ 160.00

    Filling the need for a book that conveys the current technology as well as the underlying history and physical background, this book tells physicists and engineers how to measure time to the precision required for modern-day use. The authors draw on their longstanding research experience with timekeeping and high-precision measurement to cover the... more...

  • Astrophysics of Planet Formationby Philip J. Armitage

    Cambridge University Press 2009; US$ 34.00

    Graduate-level textbook providing a basic understanding of the astrophysical processes for readers in planetary science, and observational and theoretical astronomy. more...

  • Chasing Hubble's Shadowsby Jeff Kanipe

    Farrar, Straus and Giroux 2007; US$ 8.99

    Chasing Hubble's Shadows is an account of the continuing efforts of astronomers to probe the outermost limits of the observable universe. The book derives its title from something the great American astronomer Edwin Hubble once wrote: "Eventually, we reach the dim boundary--the utmost limits of our telescopes. There, we measure shadows, and we... more...

  • High-Energy Emission from Pulsars and their Systemsby Diego F. Torres; Nanda Rea

    Springer 2011; US$ 459.00

    The aim of the inaugural meeting of the Sant Cugat Forum on Astrophysics was to address, in a global context, the current understanding of and challenges in high-energy emissions from isolated and non-isolated neutron stars, and to confront the theoretical picture with observations of both the Fermi satellite and the currently operating ground-based... more...

  • Galaxy Collisionsby Curtis Struck

    Springer 2011; US$ 39.95

    The spectacular images of galaxy collisions capture the imagination. This book will show what is out there in the universe, what it's like in other galaxies, what they might look like, and how cosmic processes might affect life in other solar systems. It will explain crucial stages in the development of physical structure in the universe, and the... more...
