An integrated discussion of the similarities and differences between the atmospheres of various bodies of the solar system, including the Earth.

This is an outstanding work.

It is truly exciting to read through this volume.


The challenge here of thinking about the histories of the atmospheres of such diverse worlds as the Earth, Jupiter and Triton, has led many of the authors to broader, synergistic views and thinking. The reader will be similarly enticed.
