Cambridge University Press, 8 nov 2004 - 719 pagine
This comprehensive volume summarises current understanding of the Jovian system, in the light of recent scientific results from the Galileo spacecraft, the Galileo probe, the Cassini spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope, and numerous ground-based and theoretical studies. Chapters are written by leading authorities in the field and cover all aspects of Jupiter, its satellites and magnetosphere. With emphasis on scientific observations and theory, this is an invaluable book for researchers and graduate students.
