Summary and Info
"Complete color global maps and high-resolution mosaics of Jupiter's four large moons - Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto - are compiled for the first time in this important atlas. The satellites are revealed as four visually striking and geologically diverse planetary bodies: Io's volcanic lavas and plumes and towering mountains; Europa's fissured ice surface; the craters, fractures and polar caps of Ganymede; and the giant impact basins, desiccated plains and icy pinnacles of Callisto. Featuring images taken from the recent Galileo mission, this atlas is a comprehensive mapping reference guide for researchers. It contains 65 global and regional maps, nearly 250 high-resolution mosaics, and images taken at resolutions from 500 meters to as high as 6 meters"--Provided by publisher."This Atlas is the first compilation to show all the highest resolution image data (all those better than 750 meters per pixel) complete and in their regional context. It is hoped that these words and pictures will be only a starting point for the reader on their own voyage of discovery!"--Provided by publisher. Read more...
