    Career opportunities in Earth and planetary sciences are diverse, spanning the private, government, and academic sectors. Government service includes research and administration in NASA, the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Agency, the US Geological Survey, the Environmental Protection Agency, and many other agencies and departments.   The Planetary Scientist's Companion, K. Lodders and B. Fegley, Oxford University Press, New York, Exploring Planetary Worlds, D. Morrison, Scientific American Library, New York, Global Earth Physics - A Handbook of Physical Constants, Edited by T. Ahrens, American Geophysical Union, Washington, D.C., (Online).

    The book covers the important physical processes in all areas of planetary science. My favorite derivations are all there, along with the important figures, graphs, and tables that show the data. The numerous homework problems challenge the student to . The Center for Planetary Science is a (c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to conducting scientific research; and promoting astronomy, planetary science, and astrophysics to the next generation of space explorers.

      Fundamental Astronomy (Kartunnen, et. al) To me (I'm just a high-schooler) this book is highly in-depth. I believe it covers what you need to graduate from BS in astronomy in my country. The other books I read isn't as thorough as this book, and/o. Book Description: An authoritative introduction for graduate students in the physical sciences, this textbook has been substantially updated and improved. With over exercises, it is ideal for courses in astronomy, planetary science and earth science/5(32).

Planetary science or, more rarely, planetology, is the scientific study of planets (including Earth), moons, and planetary systems (in particular those of the Solar System) and the processes that form them. It studies objects ranging in size from micrometeoroids to gas giants, aiming to.

Given their formidable task, de Pater and Lissauer have done as good a job as can be imagined, and I can't imagine two other authors doing a better job on a first edition this book could serve as a valuable introduction to aspects of planetary science that graduate students might never study at all the discussions are generally so comprehensive and up-to-date that active scientists /5(17).
