Frontiers of astrobiology( Book )

2 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 190 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Astrobiology is an exciting interdisciplinary field that seeks to answer one of the most important and profound questions: Are we alone? In this volume, leading international experts explore the frontiers of astrobiology, investigating the latest research questions that will fascinate a wide interdisciplinary audience at all levels. What is the earliest evidence for life on Earth? Where are the most likely sites for life in the Solar System? Could life have evolved elsewhere in the Galaxy? What are the best strategies for detecting intelligent extraterrestrial life? How many habitable or Earth-like exoplanets are there? Progress in astrobiology over the past decade has been rapid and, with evidence accumulating that Mars once hosted standing bodies of liquid water, the discovery of over 500 exoplanets, and new insights into how life began on Earth, the scientific search for our origins and place in the cosmos continues. The book is based on a meeting at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, which gathered leading researchers to present state-of-the-art reviews on their research and address topics at the forefront of astrobiology"--
Earth : evolution of a habitable world by Jonathan Irving Lunine( Book )

31 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 173 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fully updated throughout, including revised illustrations and new images from NASA missions, this new edition provides an overview of Earth's history from a planetary science perspective for Earth science undergraduates. Earth's evolution is described in the context of what we know about other planets and the cosmos at large, from the origin of the cosmos to the processes that shape planetary environments and from the origins of life to the inner workings of cells. Astronomy, Earth science, planetary science and astrobiology are integrated to give students the whole picture of how the Earth has come to its present state and an understanding of the relationship between key ideas in different fields. The book presents concepts in nontechnical language and mathematical treatments are avoided where possible. New end-of-chapter summaries and questions allow students to check their understanding and critical thinking is emphasized to encourage students to explore ideas scientifically for themselves. Integrates astronomy, Earth science, planetary science and astrobiology to give students the whole picture of how the Earth has come to its present state. Presents concepts in nontechnical language and avoids mathematical treatments where possible, allowing students to grasp concepts without wading through complex maths. New end-of-chapter summaries and questions allow students to check their understanding and encourage wider critical thinking."--Publisher's description

Dynamic Phenomena in the Lakes and Seas of Titan by Jason Daniel Hofgartner( Book )

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

Earth and Titan are unique in the Solar System as the only planetary bodies with active hydrologic cycles that include reservoirs of stable, surface liquid. Titan's lakes and seas are primarily composed of methane, ethane, and nitrogen. The buoyancy of frozen solids in these ternary systems is studied. Assuming thermodynamic equilibrium, it is found that frozen solids will float in methane-rich systems for all temperatures below the freezing point. Frozen solids in ethanerich systems will float if the solid has an air porosity of greater than 10% by volume. For smaller porosities, the buoyancy of the solid in ethane-rich systems changes with temperature and this temperature dependence may result in seasonal oscillations that are unique to Titan. These results have implications for the climatology, geology, and habitability of Titan. Titan's methane hydrologic cycle has been observed to include exchange between the surface and atmospheric reservoirs that is driven by seasonal variation in the distribution of solar energy. Recently, as the summer season approaches in the northern hemisphere, where greater than 99% of Titan's liquids are located, the Cassini orbiter has detected anomalously bright features in the seas. These features are unlikely to be SAR image artifacts or permanent geophysical structures and thus their appearance is the result of an ephemeral phenomenon on Titan. They are found to be more consistent with floating and/or suspended solids, bubbles, and waves than tides, sea level change, and seafloor change and based on the frequency of these phenomena in terrestrial settings, waves is considered to be the most probable hypothesis. Titan's northern seas are therefore not stagnant liquid bodies but environments where dynamic processes occur. The timing of their appearance suggests that these transients are an expression of the changing seasons

Volatiles in the outer solar system: I. Thermodynamics of clathrate hydrates. II. Ethane ocean on Titan. III. Evolution of primordial Titan atmosphere by Jonathan Irving Lunine( )

1 edition published in 1985 in Undetermined and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

<p>Three investigations are conducted into the physical chemistry of volatiles in the outer solar system and the role of volatiles in icy satellite evolution.</p> <p>Part I:</p> <p>The thermodynamic stability of clathrate hydrate is calculated under a wide range of temperature and pressure conditions applicable to solar system problems, using a statistical mechanical theory developed by Van der Waals and Platteeuw (1959) and existing experimental data on properties of clathrate hydrates and their components. At low pressure, dissociation pressures and partition functions (Langmuir constants) for CO clathrate (hydrate) have been predicted using the properties of clathrate containing, as guests, molecules similar to CO. The comparable or higher propensity of CO to incorporate in clathrate relative to N_2 is used to argue for high CO to N_2 ratios in primordial Titan if N_2 were accreted as clathrate. The relative incorporation of noble gases in clathrate from a solar composition gas at low temperatures is calculated, and applied to the case of giant planet atmospheres and icy satellites. It is argued that non-solar but well-constrained noble gas abundances would be measured by Galileo in the Jovian atmosphere if the observed carbon enhancement were due to bombardment of the atmosphere by clathrate-bearing planetesimals sometime after planetary formation. The noble gas abundances of Titan's atmosphere are also predicted under the hypothesis that much of the satellite's methane accreted as clathrate. Double occupancy of clathrate cages by H_2 and CH_4 in contact with a solar composition gas is examined, and it is concluded that potentially important amounts of H_2 may have incorporated in satellites as clathrate. The kinetics of clathrate formation is also examined, and it is suggested that, under thermodynamically appropriate conditions, essentially complete clathration of water ice could have occurred in high pressure nebulae around giant planets but probably not in t

Brown dwarfs : the new frontier by Jonathan Irving Lunine( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lecture focuses on objects intermediate in mass between planets and low mass stars, looking at the spectra of Gliese 229B and of other cool objects which allow the thermal structure and chemistry of such objects to be determined. Further discussion includes high-throughput computing, which has opened the door to atmosphere and interior models whose complexity is commensurate with the new data, and the detection of Jupiter-mass planets around other stars
