Although lunar exploration began in the 1960s, the moon and other
planets have many long-standing, unanswered questions about
planetary environments, origin, formation and evolution,
magnetization of crustal rocks, internal structure, and possible
life. However, with the recent development of planetary geodesy and
remote sensing with higher spatial and spectral resolution have
come new opportunities to explore and understand the moon and
planets in greater detail. Written by well-established,
international scientists in the planetary science and remote
sensing fields, Planetary Geodesy and Remote Sensing presents the
latest methods and techniques of planetary geodesy and remote
sensing. The book discusses the latest results in planetary
science, including theory, methods, measurements, topography,
gravity and magnetic field, atmosphere and ionosphere,
geomorphology, volcano, craters, internal structure, and water. The
book also highlights comparative studies with the earth in the
atmosphere, geomorphology, and interiors of the planets. It
discusses future missions and future objectives of planetary
exploration and science using the latest advances in remote
sensing. With chapters contributed by a stellar list of pioneers
and experts, the book provides new insight on the application of
new technologies and the observations in planetary geodesy. It is
suitable for those working in the field as well as for planetary
probe designers, engineers, and planetary geologists and
