4 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Hilton Ratcliffe on August 1, 2007
Format: Hardcover
Although pricy, this proceedings volume is an essential text for serious students of the chemical structure of the Solar System. Editor Professor Oliver Manuel is himself a key role player in this investigation, and puts into practices a method that is extremely satisfying for the empirical scientist - he weights measurement over theory. As an astronomer, the presentation of these data has been crucial in my understanding of the Solar System, and in the resolution of so-called "anomalies" in solar measurements. Ultimately, I have been able to use this volume and its comprehensive references and citations to draw my own conclusions from arguments on both sides of many contentious issues surrounding our Sun and its family of satellites. This book receives my highest recommendation. It may well be the best few hundred dollars a serious solar scientist could spend.
