Although lunar exploration began in the 1960s, the moon and other planets have many long-standing, unanswered questions about planetary environments, origin, formation and evolution, magnetization of crustal rocks, internal structure, and possible life. However, with the recent development of planetary geodesy and remote sensing with higher spatial and spectral resolution have come new opportunities to explore and understand the moon and planets in greater detail. Written by well-established, international scientists in the planetary science and remote sensing fields, Planetary Geodesy and Remote Sensing presents the latest methods and techniques of planetary geodesy and remote sensing.
The book discusses the latest results in planetary science, including theory, methods, measurements, topography, gravity and magnetic field, atmosphere and ionosphere, geomorphology, volcano, craters, internal structure, and water. The book also highlights comparative studies with the earth in the atmosphere, geomorphology, and interiors of the planets. It discusses future missions and future objectives of planetary exploration and science using the latest advances in remote sensing.
