'… lavishly illustrated … as a repository of just about everything we currently know about Io (and are likely to know for some time, with no new missions in view) it is an enormously valuable reference work.' The Observatory

'The style of the book is detailed yet fluid. Figures and graphics are aptly chosen, especially the colour plates. Some new sketches by the author illustrate well our collective vision of Io's surface and subsurface on a broad scale. This book would make for a nice companion to any upper-level volcanology or remote-sensing course text.' Jani Radebaugh, Department of Geological Sciences, Brigham Young University, Utah

'… the first book to focus primarily on the observations and interpretations of Ionian volcanic activity and compare these processes to those seen on Earth. … I believe it to be more suitable for teaching advanced level undergraduate courses and I would particularly recommend it for use by graduate level students and researchers in planetary science. It is especially suitable for terrestrial volcanologists wishing to better understand volcanic processes on other planets…' Earth, Moon and Planets

'…a great contribution to the field of volcanic remote sensing and to Io science.' Physics Today

'…an excellent text for both undergraduates and those involved in volcanic-planetary research.' Journal of Geological Magazine

Über das Produkt

This richly illustrated book is the first dedicated to volcanism on Io. Containing the latest results from the Galileo mission data analysis this book will be a fascinating reference for advanced undergraduates, graduate students and researchers in planetary sciences, volcanology, remote sensing and geology.

A concise technical book for a senior level college background 3. Februar 2013
Von Neil Pearson - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Davies provides a detailed summary of the current knowledge of Io based on voyager, Galileo and telescopic observations. He provides summaries and explanations of many mathematical equations used to in many of the discoveries making this book invaluable to anyone wanting to study volcanism on Earth or elsewhere, while some of it may be difficult for persons without a technical background especially those with no remote sensing experience.
Required reading for volcano enthusiasts and researchers 11. Mai 2011
Von Edwin Kite - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
This is the required starting point for anyone seriously interested in volcanism on Io. The author was heavily involved in the Galileo mission to Jupiter, which provided most of our knowledge of volcanic processes on Io. There's an appropriate emphasis on observations and simple models in this book, but plenty of material for those interested in more abstract models (of volcanic plumbing systems, geodynamics, and so on).

The writing is easy to follow, and accessible to undergraduates or to a general audience interested in volcanoes. However this is not a coffee-table book, (there are only 16 pages of color figures).
