Editorial Reviews

Reviews the physical and chemical alterations in the surfaces of interstellar and interplanetary grains, planetary satellites (including the Moon), ring particles, asteroids, and atmosphere- lacking Mercury, and in the upper atmospheres of other planets and the larger satellites, when they are bombarded by radiation from the solar wind, magnetospheric plasmas, cosmic rays, solar energetic particles, and U.V. photons. Discusses the resulting effect on the reflectance spectra, and the ejection by sputtering of species into the gas phase, thereby determining the ambient gas and the local plasma. Annotation c.
