Ices in the Solar System: A Volatile-Driven Journey from the Inner Solar System to Its Far
Reaches explores the origins, evolution and distribution of various ice species throughout the
solar system.
Geographically, the book’s focus on ice(s) migrates outwardly from Mercury, the Earth and the
Moon, Mars, then Ceres and other volatile-rich small bodies; it carries on with the moons of
Jupiter, Saturn, and Uranus, followed by Pluto and other Kuiper Belt/Trans-Neptunian objects.
Conceptually and empirically, the book depicts the often-enigmatic narratives of the different
ice species (H2O, CO2, CH4, etc.) in the solar system and examines their interaction with a wide
range of surface, near-subsurface, interior and atmospheric processes.
