The farthest : Voyager in space by PBS( Visual )

5 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 645 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1977, NASA launched the Voyager missions as a way of exploring the solar system's outermost planets, capturing images of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and their moons. "The farthest" documents Voyager's journey, including first-hand accounts of the men and women who built the ships and guided their missions. Bonus film "Second genesis" explores the scientific quest to find life, or evidence of it, beyond Earth
Jupiter : the planet, satellites, and magnetosphere by Fran Bagenal( Book )

17 editions published between 2004 and 2007 in English and held by 345 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This comprehensive volume authoritatively describes current understanding of the complex jovian system. Written by a team of world experts, it brings together every aspect of the giant planetary system, from the deep interior of Jupiter to the distant tiny satellites and swarms of escaping gas and dust. Chapters present a synthesis of experimental data from the Voyager, Galileo, and Cassini missions, from telescopes on the ground and in space, and from theoretical models on the different components that make up the Jupiter system. This book is a valuable introduction for graduate students and an indispensable resource for all researchers in planetary science."--BOOK JACKET
Heliophysics : active stars, their astrospheres, and impacts on planetary environments by Carolus J Schrijver( Book )

10 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heliophysics is a fast-developing scientific discipline that integrates studies of the Sun's variability, the surrounding heliosphere, and the environment and climate of planets. This volume, the fourth in the Heliophysics collection, explores what makes the conditions on Earth 'just right' to sustain life, by comparing Earth to other solar system planets, by comparing solar magnetic activity to that of other stars, and by looking at the properties of evolving exoplanet systems. By taking an interdisciplinary approach and using comparative heliophysics, the authors illustrate how we can learn about our local cosmos by looking beyond it, and in doing so, also enable the converse. Supplementary online resources are provided, including lecture presentations, problem sets and exercise labs, making this ideal as a textbook for advanced undergraduate- and graduate-level courses, as well as a foundational reference for researchers in the many subdisciplines of helio- and astrophysics

Auroral phenomenology and magnetospheric processes : earth and other planets( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series. Many of the most basic aspects of the aurora remain unexplained. While in the past terrestrial and planetary auroras have been largely treated in separate books, Auroral Phenomenology and Magnetospheric Processes: Earth and Other Planets takes a holistic approach, treating the aurora as a fundamental process and discussing the phenomenology, physics, and relationship with the respective planetary magnetospheres in one volume. While there are some behaviors common in auroras of the diffe

Conditions at the magnetopauses of Jupiter and Saturn and implications for the solar wind interaction by Mariel Jene Meier( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of the solar wind interaction with the giant outer planets, Jupiter and Saturn, has not been well described or understood, due to limited measurements of the plasma conditions and magnetic fields at the magnetopauses of these planets. At Earth this interaction can be examined in depth with local spacecraft and measurements from the planet's surface. It is accepted that large-scale reconnection between the draped interplanetary magnetic field and planetary magnetic field is the dominant method by which the solar wind imparts mass and momentum to the terrestrial magnetosphere. When reconnection is suppressed, due to a parallel magnetic field configuration, viscous processes at the magnetopause mediate the interaction. At the outer planets, the environments in which this interaction takes place differ significantly from the terrestrial case, due to the changes in the solar wind with radial distance, along with the larger sizes of the magnetospheres and internal plasma sources at the moons Io and Enceladus
A new Martian general circulation model: Applications to the Martian hydrologic cycle by Richard Atsuki Urata( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A new general circulation model for the simulation of the Martian climate is introduced. The model, based on the Community Atmosphere Model (CAM) version 3.1 developed by the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) is a three dimensional model with full support for multi-processor computing. The model is validated by comparing the simulation results to various spacecraft observations including atmospheric temperature, surface temperature, convective boundary layer depth, water vapor, and cloud opacity. Comparisons of zonal mean atmospheric temperatures are typically within 5 K of observations, and the largest divergences can be accounted for by including the radiative effects of water-ice clouds. Both the pattern and magnitude of the observations for the present-day water vapor and cloud annual cycles have been reproduced in the model

Comparative KBOlogy: Using surface spectra of Triton, Pluto, and Charon to investigate atmospheric, surface, and interior processes on Kuiper Belt Objects by Bryan Jason Holler( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This thesis presents analyses of the surface compositions of the icy outer Solar System objects Triton, Pluto, and Charon. Pluto and its satellite Charon are Kuiper Belt Objects (KBOs) while Triton, the largest of Neptune's satellites, is a former member of the KBO population. Near-infrared spectra of Triton and Pluto were obtained over the previous 10+ years with the SpeX instrument at the IRTF and of Charon in Summer 2015 with the OSIRIS instrument at Keck. The Charon data were reduced by spectrophotometry using code that I wrote for this purpose. I present evidence of short-term volatile transport and the presence of the non-methane hydrocarbon ethane on Pluto and Triton, as well as uniform temperature and ammonia ice distributions on Charon. Based on previous laboratory work and the results of my analysis, I conclude that cryovolcanism is not necessary to explain the high percentage of crystalline water ice on Charon. The three "geologic" bodies, those previously visited by spacecraft, provide context for understanding the larger population of KBOs, the "astronomical" bodies that may never be visited by spacecraft. Observations of the geologic bodies can be used to better understand the atmospheric, surface, and interior processes on all KBOs through what I term "comparative KBOlogy." Next-generation observatories, both in space and on the ground, will further contribute to our knowledge of the dominant processes that shape the surface evolution of KBOs
