In addition, the original Volume 1 on "Meteorites, Comets, and Planets" was expanded into two separate volumes dealing with meteorites and planets, respectively. These additions increased the number of volumes in the Treatise from 9 to 15 with the index/appendices volume remaining as . Volume 1 provides a broad overview of the chemistry of the solar system. It includes chapters on the origin of the elements and solar system abundances, the solar nebula and planet formation, meteorite classification, the major types of meteorites, important processes in early solar system history, geochemistry of the terrestrial planets, the giant planets and their satellite, comets, and the. This volume is intended to be the first reference work one would consult to learn about the chemistry of the solar system. Contents 1. Origin of the Elements. 2. Presolar Grains. 3. Solar System Abundances of the Elements. 4. The Solar Nebula. 5. Classification of Meteorites. 6. Oxygen Isotopes in Meteorites. 7. Chondrites and their Components. 8.

Asteroids, Meteorites, and Comets (Solar System) 2nd Revised ed. Edition Discusses the solar system bodies that are not one of the nine planets or their moons, including asteroids in the main asteroid belt as well as throughout the rest of the solar system, comets from both the Kuiper belt and from the much more distant Oort cloud, and the Cited by: 2. Deep space comets and nearer spaced comets are discussed. A nice picture of the 4, foot wide impact crater near Winslow Arizona is shown. This is a very good book for kids years old to read and parents to read and show pictures to the little ones. 5 stars as a kids book to get them to read more and increase their reading pleasure.4/4(7).

HANDBOOK OF IRON METEORITES VOLUME I IRON METEORITES IN GENERAL Tables, Appendices, References VOLUME 2 Comets 8 Meteors and Extraterrestrial Dust 10 List of Tables - Volume 1 The Planets 7 2 Some Normal Asteroids, or Minor Planets File Size: 1MB. Generally speaking, meteoroids are all the smaller objects in orbit around the Sun. Most of them originate from comets that lose gas and dust when they approach the Sun. Other meteoroids are basically small asteroids. There is no exact diameter that distinguishes an asteroid from a meteoroid. Wikipedia states 10 metres; other trustworthy sites. This comprehensive book is an expertly guided, in-depth look at meteorites. The authors trace the formation and breakup of the planets, asteroids, and comets where meteorites originated, their long journey through space, their fall to Earth, their recovery, and what scientists are learning from them.
