Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the
Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 130.Atmospheres are crucial
components of our universe. They are the only observable regions of
stars and giant planets, both within and beyond our solar system.
Some terrestrial-size bodies (Venus, Earth, Mars, Titan and Triton)
have permanent atmospheres while others (e.g., Mercury, Moon, Io,
and Europa) have tenuous gaseous envelopes that change daily.
Comets are tiny bodies by planetary yardsticks, but their
atmospheres can be the largest visible objects in the night sky.
Atmospheric science strives to understand how such a diverse set of
atmospheres form, evolve, and disappear.
