Cambridge Planetary Science : The Surface of Mars Series Number 6 Paperback / softback


Our knowledge of Mars has grown enormously over the last decade as a result of the Mars Global Surveyor, Mars Odyssey, Mars Express, and the two Mars Rover missions.

This book is a systematic summary of what we have learnt about the geological evolution of Mars as a result of these missions.

It describes the diverse Martian surface features and summarizes current ideas as to how, when, and under what conditions they formed, and explores how Earth and Mars differ and why the two planets evolved so differently.

The author also discusses possible implications of the geologic history for the origin and survival of indigenous Martian life.

Up-to-date and highly illustrated, this book will be a principal reference for researchers and graduate students in planetary science.

The comprehensive list of references will also assist readers in pursuing further information on the subject.
