Planetary sciences by Imke De Pater ( Book )
25 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 528 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"An authoritative introduction for graduate students in the physical sciences, this textbook explains the wide variety of physical, chemical, and geological processes that govern the motions and properties of planets. The second edition of this awarding-winning textbook has been substantially updated and improved. It now contains a reorganized discussion of small bodies, including a detailed description of the Kuiper belt and asteroid belt; a significantly expanded chapter on extrasolar planets and what they tell us about planetary systems; and appendixes providing a glossary of acronyms, tables of key spacecraft, a summary of observing techniques, and a sampling of very recent images. With over 300 exercises to help students apply the concepts covered, this textbook is ideal for courses in astronomy, planetary science and earth science, and well suited as a reference for researchers. Color versions of many figures and movie clips supplementing the text are available at www.cambridge.org/9780521853712"--Provided by publisher

Finding Earth-size planets in the habitable zone : the Kepler mission by William Borucki ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"The Kepler Mission is a space-based mission whose primary goal is to detect Earth-size and smaller planets in the habitable zone of solar-like stars. The mission will monitor more than 100,000 stars for transits with a differential photometric precision of 20 ppm at V=12 for a 6.5 hour transit. It will also provide asteroseismic results on several thousand dwarf stars. It is specifically designed to continuously observe a single field of view of greater than 100 square degrees for 3.5 or more years.This overview describes the mission design, its goals and capabilities, the measured performance for those photometer components that have now been tested, the Kepler Input Catalog, an overview of the analysis pipeline, the plans for the Follow-up Observing Program to validate the detections and characterize the parent stars, and finally, the plans for the Guest Observer and Astrophysical Data Program."
Kepler-6b : a transiting hot Jupiter orbiting a metal-rich star by Edward W Dunham ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
"We announce the discovery of Kepler-6b, a transiting hot Jupiter orbiting a star with unusually high metallicity, {[Fe/H]}= +0.34+/- 0.04. The planet's mass is about 2/3 that of Jupiter, M P = 0.67 M J, and the radius is 30% larger than that of Jupiter, R P = 1.32 R J, resulting in a density of [p expression (Expression [((bind e Element) eof) e]) P = 0.35 g cm-3, a fairly typical value for such a planet. The orbital period is P = 3.235 days. The host star is both more massive than the Sun, M sstarf = 1.21 M sun, and larger than the Sun, R sstarf = 1.39 R sun. Based in part on observations obtained at the W. M. Keck Observatory, which is operated by the University of California and the California Institute of Technology."
