"...an excellent and well-written book, full of useful information and stimulating ideas." The Leading Edge
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.
