Planetary scientist Lopes (NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory) collaborated with science writer and artist Carroll to offer a general audience this substantial exploration of volcanic activity throughout the solar system, illustrated by images from NASA and the European Space Agency as well as Carroll's paintings. The chapters consider volcanos in the history of the Earth and other planets, volcanic mountains on the terrestrial planets and "dead worlds" like the moon, volcanic activity on non-earthlike entities including Jupiter's four largest moons and the gas giants, and plumes on the moons Triton (Neptune) and Enceladus (Saturn). One chapter also discusses the hints about extraterrestrial volcanos that can be gleaned from cryovolcanism in Earth's deep sea vents. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR ( Read More
