This book succeeds in making the immense and remote universe of galaxies much more accessible to our imagination. It also conveys the excitement and wonder of this rapidly changing area of scientific inquiry. Enriched by numerous illustrations and written in an engaging style, Galaxies offers a nontechnical yet intelligent approach to the concepts and results of modern galactic research

Galaxies by Paul W Hodge( Book )

7 editions published in 1986 in English and held by 640 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Galaxies are among nature's most aweinspiring and beautifully formed objects. In this highly informative and lucidly written book, Paul Hodge seeks to demystify galaxies and to examine closely our present-day knowledge of these magnificent star systems

Meteorite craters and impact structures of the earth by Paul W Hodge( Book )

16 editions published between 1994 and 2010 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During its five-billion-year history, Earth has been hit countless times by asteroids and meteorites. Where can you come face-to-face with these scars from cosmic debris? They are found on every continent, and over 150 crater-producing events have been identified. This book describes 139 sites worldwide at which evidence of the impacts can be seen. They range in age from recent craters formed this century to the highly eroded billion-year-old ancient craters. Some impact sites are spectacular to visit, such as the Barringer Crater in Arizona, the ring-shaped mountains of Gosses Bluff, Australia, and the huge crater at Ries in Germany. For each site there is a summary table giving location, size, age and present condition. Maps are included where necessary. Paul Hodge has visited many of the sites and his photographs enrich this thorough survey. Meteorite craters are fascinating to visit, so the descriptions include guidance about access and suggested itineraries for the larger structures. Meteorite craters and impact structures of the Earth is both a reference book and a travel guide, which will interest geologists and astronomers
Galaxies and the cosmic frontier by William H Waller( Book )

6 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 518 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Orienting us with an insider's tour of our cosmic home, the Milky Way, William Waller and Paul Hodge then take us on a spectacular journey, inviting us to probe the exquisite structures and motions of giant spiral and elliptical galaxies, to witness the transformative dramas of colliding and erupting galaxies, and to pay our respects to the most powerful galaxies of all the quasars

Higher than Everest : an adventurer's guide to the solar system by Paul W Hodge( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2004 in English and held by 388 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this unique guidebook, Paul Hodge takes us on a tour of the most spectacular sites in the Solar System. His vivid descriptions of the challenges provide a compelling introduction to extra-terrestrial environments. Starting with a climb of Mars' Mt. Olympus, much higher than Everest, you will be taken on imaginary expeditions to such exotic places as the Moon's Alpine Valley, Venus' precipitous and scorching Mt. Maxwell, a table mountain on Io, the snows of Saturn's rings and Miranda's incredibly high, icy cliff. You will be treated to a descent into a fabulous canyon on Mars, one that dwarfs the Earth's Grand Canyon, and will explore the rock lakes and terraces of Copernicus, a giant crater on the Moon."--Jacket

The Andromeda Galaxy by Paul W Hodge( Book )

12 editions published between 1992 and 2011 in English and held by 238 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Andromeda Galaxy, or M31, is an attractive galaxy for astronomers. It is close to us, it is of about the size of our galaxy, it provides some intriguing observational puzzles because the galaxy is nearly edge-on, and many objects can be studied in detail, because they are still sufficiently bright. With the current developments in instrumentation with which increasingly detailed studies of the Andromeda Galaxy can be made, this book provides a solid foundation for the start of new observations. This book is a mine of information about M31. It can be used as a reference by insiders, and at the same time it provides easy access for newcomers to the field
The revolution in astronomy by Paul W Hodge( Book )

9 editions published between 1970 and 1972 in 3 languages and held by 231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Atlas of the Andromeda Galaxy by Paul W Hodge( Book )

An atlas of local group galaxies by Paul W Hodge( Book )

24 editions published between 2002 and 2010 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This Atlas provides a complete set of images of Local Group Galaxies (excluding the three for which identification atlases are already in print) and shows the most important objects, including many thousands of individual stars and interstellar objects." "It is unique in its coverage and format and provides a source of these fundamental data that will be used for many years. Researchers, students and even amateur astronomers will be able to use the Atlas to identify and study the various components of the nearly 30 important galaxies covered by the Atlas." "The objects identified on the more than 200 charts include variable stars, globular star clusters, open star clusters, stellar associations, emission regions, supernova remnants, planetary nebulae and dust clouds. Each galaxy is accompanied by an extensive bibliography."--Jacket
The Henbury meteorite craters by Paul W Hodge( Book )

5 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The spiral galaxy M33 by Paul W Hodge( Book )

10 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 78 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book summarizes the gathering of information on and the growing understanding of M33 from the 1920s, when Hubble first determined its true nature, to the 21st century, when the Hubble Telescope probed deeply into its many secrets. With its regular symmetrical spiral structure, and its being not tilted too much and near enough to allow detailed studies of its stars, M33 is well-suited for the study of a typical spiral galaxy. In this work, Paul Hodge places current research on M33 (and similar galaxies) in both historical and global perspectives. The book is written in a language accessible for specialists and non-specialists, for professional and amateur astronomers, for scientists and the curious public and, most importantly, for students."--Publisher's website
