'… 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.
