Product details

Product Description


'Protoplanetary Dust is a terrific edition (No. 12) to the Cambridge Planetary Science Series. … This book should be required reading for all cosmochemists (and astronomers), and it would serve as a excellent text for an interesting graduate course on the origin of solar systems.' Geochemical News

'… an excellent read, very much at the research edge in the field, and very up to date in the sources used. I would recommend it highly to graduate students, but also for the bookshelves of professionals in the field.' The Observatory

'… can be recommended not only to planetary scientists working in the field of planet formation but also to students who seek an introduction to this enormously challenging topic. The organization of the contents makes it possible to concentrate on certain aspects, as few people will be experts in all topics. Having the book on your shelf gives you the confidence that the comprehensive overview of the history of solids in our solar system from a simple grain to the beautiful planet we live on is just a move away.' Ruth Ziethe, European Space Research and Technology Centre, European Space Agency

Book Description

The first comprehensive overview of planet formation, this book is a clear introduction and valuable reference for students and researchers in astronomy, cosmochemistry, laboratory astrophysics and planetary sciences. Following the evolution of solids, astronomers, cosmochemists and laboratory astrophysicists jointly discuss the latest insights.

Great review of planet formation for graduate students/researchers 14 Jan. 2013
By Gliese876 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Great review of the different stages of planet formation from many of the top experts in the field. This book includes both the astronomical and the meteoritical constraints and links them, which is very unusual (most other books on planet formation only focus on the astronomical observations/models).
The book's level is suitable for graduate students and researchers.
