About this book

This book is an appealing, concise, and factual account of the chemistry of the solar system. It includes basic facts about the chemical composition of the different bodies in the solar system, the major chemical processes involved in the formation of the Sun, planets, and small objects, and the chemical processes that determine their current chemical make-up.

There are numerous informative summary tables and data is presented in graphical form which is useful for identifying common features of the major processes that determine the current chemical state of the planets. The book will interest general readers with a background in chemistry who would enjoy reading about the chemical diversity of the solar system's objects as well as an introductory textbook for graduate classes in planetary sciences.

Contents

The Elements in the Solar System; Meteorites; The Solar Nebula; The Solid Bodies in the Inner Solar System; Terrestrial Atmospheric Chemistry; The Greenhouse Effect and Biogeochemical Cycles on Earth; Atmospheric Chemistry on Venus and Mars; The Planets in the Outer Solar System; Extrasolar Planets and Brown Dwarfs
