Venus: The New Geology by Peter Cattermole



In the first book on the geology of Venus to incorporate findings from the Magellan spacecraft's four-year mapping mission, Peter Cattermole introduces the reader to the strange world of Venusian landscapes-some reassuringly familiar, others spectacularly non-Earthlike, and all produced by geological processes of intriguing differences and parallels to those of Earth.

Venus is a planet with striking geology. Of all the other planets in the Solar System, it is the one nearest to Earth and most like it in terms of mass, but has no magnetic field or recognizable plate tectonic system. Much of the ground surface is exposed volcanic bedrock, some with thin and patchy layers of soil covering, in marked contrast with Earth, the Moon, and Mars.

This work on the geology of Venus has been written in the light of the US Magellan probe in 1990. This revealed many unsuspected details of the planet's topography and geology through images of amazing quality. Drawing on not only the Magellan probe, but also data gathered by the Soviet expedition which landed a spacecraft and conducted geochemical investigations, the book describes the topography, geomorphology and structure of the planet, and also encompasses geophysical arguments about details of the atmospheric conditions. This work is aimed at a wide readership, ranging from those with a serious amateur interest in astronomy, to students of planetary geology in undergraduate courses, and researchers in the fields of planetary geology, geomorphology and other subfields of the Earth and space sciences.
