This book is a unique account of the geologic development of a young oceanicbasin and its adjacent marginal seas.

In addition, the potential economic value of ocean resources is carefully evaluated. A detailed bibliography complements the text

Morphology of the rocky members of the solar system by Elazar Uchupi( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using new satellite imageries, chemical and geophysical data obtained by NASA and other space agencies, the authors pre- sent an updated concept of the origin of the Solar System. This excellently written protrayal focuses on the morphology of planets and moons and the reasons for their differences, looking at the Solar System as one entity rather than a group of individual planets. The main field of comparison is their morphology supple- mented by data in chemistry and geophysics from space probes and from the Earth, including a chapter on Venus based on data recorded by the Magellan mission. Many compiled maps and photographs with details from satellite imagery complete an exciting book not only for scientists in planetology and astronomy but also geomorphologists, hydrologists and the interested public
