Editorial Reviews

Review

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

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.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
Major issues about the Earth are approached from various lines of evidence. This study is unusual in that the author sees the Earth not alone, but in its place among other planets of the Solar System. Information from space studies is an integral part of the rigorous yet clear presentation. The illustrations alone are worth serious study.
