An authoritative introduction for graduate students in the physical sciences, this textbook explains the wide variety of physical, chemical, and geological processes that govern the motions and properties of planets.

The Second Edition of this award-winning textbook has been substantially updated and improved, and now contains

With over 300 exercises to help students learn how to apply the concepts covered, this textbook is ideal for graduate courses in astronomy, planetary science, and earth science, and well suited as a reference for researchers.

"The Second Edition keeps pace with the new discoveries in planetary science. It still has the classic figures and tables, but it also has spectacular new images and new theories. More space is devoted to derivations, so students can learn the material on their own. The book works at many levels, and I will continue to use it in my courses." Andrew P. Ingersoll, Division of Geological and Planetary Sciences, California Institute of Technology

"...a comprehensive coverage of this fascinating and expanding field... The book explains the wide variety of physical, chemical, and geological processes that govern the motions and properties of planets... an excellent textbook for anyone studying astronomy and planetary geology ...Highly recommended." Richard Taylor, Spaceflight

"...the book is essentially excellent...a valuable introduction to aspects of planetary science...the discussions are generally so comprehensive and up-to-date that active scientists will find the individual chapters to be excellent primers' on subjects outside their formal training. There really is no other book at this level like Planetary Sciences." William B. McKinnon, EOS

"... a massive achievement, and the well-considered problems and exercises at the end of each chapter will be particularly useful to students and to test one's own understanding." William B. Hubbard, Physics Today
