Our subject is, of course, nothing more than applied physics and chemistry. But in addition to those basic sciences the student of planetary atmospheres needs an overview of atmospheric structure and physical processes as presently understood. This book is intended to help fill that need for both graduate students and research scientists. Although the approach is mainly theoretical, very little basic physics is developed here. Material that is standard fare in third- and fourth-year physics courses is simply absorbed where needed.29, 400-402. Surface temperatures measured by Mariner 9 have been analyzed in KIEFPER, H. H.; CHASE, S. C.; ... Section 1.8.5 Mercury and Moon The Mariner 10 results on Mercurya#39;s atmosphere are discussed in KUMAR, S. (1976).
