9780521619233: The Geology of Multi-Ring Impact Basins: The Moon and Other Planets (Cambridge Planetary Science Old)

Multi-ring basins are large impact craters formed in the early history of planets. They critically affect the evolution of the planets and their satellites. The Moon offers an exceptional chance to study these phenomena and this book provides a comprehensive geological study using data from lunar landings and remote sensing of the Moon. The author covers the formation and development of basins and considers their chemistry and mineralogy. He studies their effects on the volcanic, tectonic and geological evolution of the planet, including the catastrophic consequence on the planetary climate and evolution of life. This study is lavishly illustrated with many spectacular, highly-detailed photographs and diagrams.

Paul D. Spudis is a Senior Staff Scientist at the Lunar and Planetary Institute in Houston, Texas. His research is on the deposits and environment of the poles of the Moon with the aim of understanding their potential as sites for future exploration and use. He was educated at Arizona State University (BS, 1976; PhD, 1982) and Brown University (ScM, 1977). He was deputy leader of the Science Team for the DoD-NASA Clementine mission in 1994, the Principal Investigator of the Mini-SAR radar imaging experiment on the Indian Chandrayaan-1 mission to the Moon in 2009, and a team member of the Mini-RF imaging radar experiment aboard NASA's current Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. He has served on two White House study groups, including the Presidential Commission on the Implementation of US Space Exploration Policy in 2004. He has been awarded the NASA Distinguished Service Medal, the Theodore von Karman medal from the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and the Space Pioneer award of the National Space Society. He is the author of more than 100 scientific papers, five books, and numerous articles for the popular press.
