Meteorites and the Early Solar System II
Edited by Dante S. Lauretta and Harry Y. McSween
 
They range in size from microscopic particles to masses of many tons. The geologic diversity of asteroids and other rocky bodies of the solar system are displayed in the enormous variety of textures and mineralogies observed in meteorites. The composition, chemistry, and mineralogy of primitive meteorites collectively provide evidence for a wide variety of chemical and physical processes.




This book synthesizes our current understanding of the early solar system, summarizing information about processes that occurred before its formation.

It will be valuable as a textbook for graduate education in planetary science and as a reference for meteoriticists and researchers in allied fields worldwide.
