Cited by: Planets have excited the minds of man since prehistory. In our own time planetary science has become a rapidly developing area of astronomical research, as the instruments carried by spacecraft have vastly increased our knowledge of planetary surfaces and interiors. the rocky planets of the inner solar system bear countless craters, scars of their encounters with Cited by:

A comprehensive scheme for understanding the evolution of the planets is explored. Planetary thermodynamics is discussed, including constituent relationships for high pressures and temperatures. The behavior of hydrogen, helium, water, iron, rock, and other materials during the evolution of planetary interiors is addressed. Launched in to fill the need for an international journal in the field of planetary physics, geodesy and geophysics, Physics of the Earth and Planetary Interiors has now grown to become important reading matter for all geophysicists. It is the only journal to be entirely devoted to the physical and chemical processes of planetary interiors.

Planetary interiors are massive heat engines. The heat accumulated during planetary formation and released by the slowly decaying radioactive isotopes present in rocks is transported from the mantle and core out to the surface by thermal diffusion and convection, which ultimately cause planets to cool over geological timescales. ISBN: X OCLC Number: Notes: Reprint. Originally published: New York, N.Y.: Van Nostrand Reinhold, © Description. Planetary interiors strongly influence the habitability of their surfaces. The composition, dynamics, and stability of the atmosphere and surface environment are influenced by the tectonic mode, the thermal state, and magnetic field generation in the interior. Using Earth as a prototype, we review the mechanisms with which the interior is thought to influence the surface, the Cited by: 3. ix, pages: 24 cm Includes bibliographical references (pages ) and index committed to retain
