Venus II: Geology, Geophysics, Atmosphere, and Solar Wind Environment (Space Science Series) by Steven W. Bougher,Donald M. Hunten,Roger J. Phillips



Venus (Space Science Series). The final orbit of Venus by the Magellan spacecraft in October 1994 brought to a close an exciting period of Venus reconnaissance and exploration. The scientific studies resulting from data collected by the Magellan, Galileo, and Pioneer missions are unprecedented in their detail for any planet except Earth. Venus II re-evaluates initial assessments of Venus in light of these and other spacecraft missions and ground-based observations conducted over the past 30 years.

Venus II re-evaluates initial assessments of Venus in light of these and other spacecraft missions and ground-based observations conducted over the past 30 years. The diversity of the coverage reflects the interdisciplinary nature of Venus science and the breadth of knowledge that has contributed to it. A CD-ROM developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory accompanies the book and incorporates text, graphics, video, software, and various digital products from selected contributors to the text. A multimedia interface allows users to navigate the text and the extensive databases included on the disk.

From a special meeting convened to re-evaluate what is known about our neighbor after three decades of missions comes Venus II: Geology, Geophysics, Atmosphere, and Solar Wind Environment. The volume's 36 chapters offer the diverse, interdisciplinary views of Venus from more than 100 scientists on topics such as lightning, cloud chemistry, rock weathering, volcanoes and craters. The CD-ROM accompanying Venus II incorporates text, data, video clips and graphics s to supplement the wealth of information contained in this source. Part I - Solar Wind Environment.

The development of Venus is complicated by a hot atmosphere. But in such a dense environment one can fly.

The final orbit of Venus by the Magellan spacecraft in October 1994 brought to a close an exciting period of Venus reconnaissance and exploration. The scientific studies resulting from data collected by the Magellan, Galileo, and Pioneer missions are unprecedented in their detail for any planet except Earth. Venus II re-evaluates initial assessments of Venus in light of these and other spacecraft missions and ground-based observations conducted over the past 30 years. More than a hundred contributors summarize our current knowledge of the planet, consider points of disagreement in interpretation, and identify priorities for future research. Topics addressed include geology, surface processes, volcanism, tectonism, impact cratering, geodynamics, upper and lower atmospheres, and solar wind environment. The diversity of the coverage reflects the interdisciplinary nature of Venus science and the breadth of knowledge that has contributed to it. A CD-ROM developed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory accompanies the book and incorporates text, graphics, video, software, and various digital products from selected contributors to the text. A multimedia interface allows users to navigate the text and the extensive databases included on the disk. Venus II is the most authoritative single volume available on the second planet. Its contents will not only help shape the goals of future Venus missions but will also enhance our understanding of current Mars explorations.

I've only read a few of the papers, but they are very good. If you know lots of phyics, this book is everything you want to know about Venus and then some. Most papers are using the Magellion data.

This is an good book for the scientifically minded interested in Venus. It starts from the outside and works in peeling back the layers of Venus like an onion. It makes a clear distinction between the accepted facts and the still debated theories.

It is a little out of date, but is an excellent place to start.

I have to warn those who are not scientific or technical professionals, this is not a book for laymen. Each chapter is written like a scientific paper, which can make for fatiguing reading if you're not use to the style.
