Earth and other planets : geology and space research by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

Takes a look at the evolution of the solar system, focusing on the earth and what makes it unique from other planets. Utilizes new information learned from space probes and takes into account the theory of plate tectonics
Building planet Earth by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

16 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 793 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Describes the physical and chemical evolution of the Earth, providing information on plate tectonics, geological cycles, volcanism, isotopic techniques, age dating, mass extinctions, and other related topics
The story of the earth by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

17 editions published between 1985 and 1999 in English and Italian and held by 703 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Story of the Earth presents the complex history of the Earth from its formation through to the emergence of man and his influence on the planet. Peter Cattermole and Patrick Moore trace the evolution of Earth from its beginnings in the primeval Solar Nebula, through its bombardment by cosmic particles, continental drifting and the formation of mountains and oceans, and end with a study of the last Ice Age and the rise of man. While the approach is roughly chronological, time is spent in explaining some of the methods that geologists, physicists, chemists and biologists use to discover what processes have contributed to the internal make-up and external appearance of our unique planet. Accounts are included of the dramatic events that are still changing the face of the Earth: volcanoes and photographs - several taken from orbiting satelites - help to elucidate the story. ... Cover
Mars : the story of the red planet by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

16 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The evidence shows that the surface of Mars has been shaped by catastrophic floods, bombardment by asteroids, widespread volcanic and periglacial activity and the Martian winds, and that the surface once featured rivers, streams and possibly rivers of snow and ice
Venus, the geological story by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

12 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 511 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first book on the geology of Venus to incorporate findings from the Magellan spacecraft's four-year mapping mission, Peter Cattermole introduces the reader to the strange world of Venusian landscapes - some reassuringly familiar, others spectacularly non-Earthlike, and all produced by geological processes of intriguing differences and parallels to those of Earth. Cattermole presents the latest research on Venusian plate tectonics, volcanoes, hot spots, cold spots, mountain belts, fracture zones, winds, erosion, craters, and lithosphere structure." "With nearly 150 detailed maps and dramatic, high-resolution images, some in full color, Venus: The Geological Story presents state-of-the-art information in a stunning visual format. While many of the topics regarding Venusian geography remain controversial, Cattermole offers an unbiased presentation that makes clear which recent data may be subject to reinterpretation in the future. This is the definitive book on a subject of interest to scientist and nonscientist alike."--Jacket
Atlas of Venus by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

13 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Venus, closest planet to the Earth, is a torrid world of extremes, shrouded from direct view by dense clouds. Atlas of Venus shows all the fascinating detail discovered on the recent Magellan mission as well as data from earlier ones. Giving the historical background to our perception of the planet, the book clearly explains why Venus has been the goal of so many missions by both Russian and American Space programs. With the latest images from the Magellan mission, this colourful atlas shows the beautiful landscapes of Venus and its dynamic volcanism. Over 100 maps and illustrations show the dramatic beauty of this mysterious but very photogenic planet. Complete with detailed maps and a gazetteer of all landmarks this is the essential reference source for all professional and amateur astronomers and planetary scientists interested in our closest neighbour
Planetary volcanism : a study of volcanic activity in the solar system by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

15 editions published between 1989 and 1996 in English and held by 398 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mars : the mystery unfolds by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

8 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the wake of a flood of new data and images from several exploratory missions, fascination with Mars has become even more intense than it was when Percival Lowell believed he had observed canals constructed by live Martians. While we know that these never existed, we do have evidence that Mars once had rivers, shallow lakes, glaciers, huge active volcanoes, and intense flooding. In this book Peter Cattermole, a geologist who has been studying the planet for many years, captures the sense of continuing excitement about Mars and its history. He builds his story on the foundations of his earlier book, Mars: The Story of the Red Planet (Chapman Hall, 1992). An immense amount of visual, geochemical, and physical data concerning the rocks, landscape, and weather is now available. The new book draws on this wealth of new information, providing a clear account of current scientific understanding of the Red Planet."--Publisher's description

Introducing the planets and their moons by Peter John Cattermole( Book )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 65 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The solar system, of which Earth is but a small part, is an amazing collection of bodies, ranging in size from the Sun, through the giant planet Jupiter, to specks of dust left over from the primordial nebula from which the solar system emerged. Excluding the Sun, the eight major planets, together with several dwarf planets and at least 160 orbiting natural satellites, form the main mass of the system. These are made from an amalgam of silicate, metal, ice, and gas. Introducing the Planets and Their Moons describes the characteristics and geological development of the eight large planetary bodies and their more substantial moons. This includes discussion of their orbital properties, magnetic fields, atmospheres, and mutual interactions. Rather than deal with the system planet by planet, the book's approach is comparative. Thus, one chapter deals with planetary orbits, another with planetary differentiation, and a third with volcanism. This enables the reader to perceive immediately how their position and size led these bodies along different evolutionary paths. Introducing the Planets and Their Moons is illustrated with some of the finest images available and includes a useful glossary for reference.--
