About this book

Recent space missions to the outer solar system, Galileo (1996-2003) and Cassini-Huygens (ongoing since 2004), together with ground-based observations, have revealed that the moons of the outer solar system are enigmatic objects, introducing extraordinary challenges for geologists, astrobiologists, organic chemists, and planetologists. This book will provide the reader with an up-to-date view of what we know and understand of the moons of outer planets: by their complexity, their internal differentiation, their geological and/or atmospheric activity, their still poorly known history and evolution. Many of these moons are actual "planetary worlds", with all the complexity this term implies. In particular, and this is the aspect this book has chosen to emphasize, these bodies are complex evolving systems in which the interactions and chemical exchange processes between the different layers - from core to atmosphere or exosphere - play a key role. Satellites of the Outer Solar System: Exchange Processes Involving the Interiors is aimed at researchers and graduate students who are active in planetary science and related branches in geology, astrobiology and chemistry. This is the second publication of its kind in the Space Sciences Series of ISSI and the result of a successful joint venture between ISSI and Europlanet. Previously published in Space Science Reviews journal, Vol. 153/1-4, 2010.
