Catalogue Of Meteorites Reference Book With Cd Rom from the Author: Monica M. Grady. The fifth edition of Catalogue of Meteorites is, like previous editions, an essential reference volume for all those with an informed interest in meteorites. The volume is a complete catalogue of all authenticated meteorites, and gives information on their classification and chemistry. It is the definitive descriptive list of The Natural History Museum, London, which maintains the official world database of all known meteorite falls and finds. It includes the 10,000 new specimens recovered since publication of the fourth edition, including those from Antarctica and deserts. An important development is the addition of CD-ROM to accompany the book, which includes greatly expanded information (literature references and analytical data for each meteorite) and an important search facility. The Catalogue is the major reference volume for everyone interested in meteorites: professional scientists, meteoriticists, collectors, dealers, and academic libraries.

Meteorites from the Author: Robert Hutchison. Meteorite research is fundamental to our understanding of the origin and early history of the Solar System. Some meteorites were produced by melting on asteroids, a few are from the Moon and others are martian. Their study yields a chronology of the first 100 million years of Solar System history and provides evidence that our Sun went through a highly radiative, T Tauri stage. This book considers the mechanism and timing of core formation and basaltic volcanism on asteroids and the effects of heating water-rich bodies. Results from meteorite research are placed in a galactic setting, and a theory is proposed for the origin of the planets of our Solar System. This advanced yet succinct introduction provides a classification of meteorites and discusses their ages and origin. It will be valuable to graduate students and scientists in astrophysics, space research, cosmochemistry, geochemistry, isotope geology and earth and planetary sciences.

Meteorites from the Author: J. T. Wasson. My goal in writing this book was to provide an introduction to meteorite science and a handbook on meteorite classification. Insofar as I succeeded it should prove useful both to the practicing professional and to university students at the upper-division and graduate levels. I originally intended the book to be nearly twice as long. The second half was to be a review of properties relating to the origin of each group of meteorites. Chapter XVIII is an example of how these later chapters would have looked, although most would not have been as interpretative. These chapters would have been useful chiefly to meteorite researchers looking for a quick summary of group properties; they were not written because of lack of time. Perhaps I will start to prepare this "second volume" in a year or so when my family and I have recovered from the preparation of the present volume. Although some parts of the classification portion are mildly icono clastic, I have attempted either to avoid the inclusion of speculative interpretations or to flag them with a caveat to the reader. I have relaxed these principles somewhat in Chapter XVIII to conserve space, but even there the discussion of alternative speculations should give the reader a feeling for the degree of uncertainty attached.
