By Schenk

whole colour international maps and high-resolution mosaics of Jupiter's 4 huge moons - Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto - are compiled for the 1st time during this very important atlas. The satellites are printed as 4 visually awesome and geologically diversified planetary our bodies: Io's volcanic lavas and plumes and towering mountains; Europa's fissured ice floor; the craters, fractures and polar caps of Ganymede; and the enormous effect basins, desiccated plains and icy pinnacles of Callisto. that includes pictures taken from the new Galileo venture, this atlas is a complete mapping reference advisor for researchers. It comprises sixty five worldwide and local maps, approximately 250 high-resolution mosaics, and pictures taken at resolutions from 500 meters to as excessive as 6 meters.
