High-Pressure Shock Compression of Solids V: Shock Chemistry with Applications to Meteorite Impacts / Edition 1 available in Hardcover
- Pub. Date:
- Springer New York
This volume is concerned primarily with the chemical and physical effects of shock waves on typical materials. It compares naturally occurring materials with similar materials produced by shock compression in the laboratory, providing clues about the environment and events that produced the natural materials.
