About this title

Synopsis:

This book describes the impact of space flight on geology and geophysics, beginning with a foreword by Neil Armstrong, which illustrates how the exploration of space has lead us to a far deeper understanding of our own planet. Direct results from Earth-orbital missions include studies of Earth's gravity and magnetic fields. In contrast, the recognition of the economic and biological significance of impact craters on Earth is an indirect consequence of the study of the geology of other planets. The final chapter presents a new theory for the tectonic evolution of the Earth based on comparative planetology and the Gaia concept.

Book Description:

Paul Lowman, a NASA scientist for over 40 years, describes how space exploration has provided new insights into the geology and geophysics of the Earth. A foreword by Neil Armstrong emphasizes that the exploration of space has lead us to a far deeper understanding of our own planet. Well illustrated with an extensive bibliography and technical glossary, this book is a valuable summary of research for geologists and geophysicists. It will serve as a supplementary text for students of tectonics, remote sensing and planetary science.
