1362 pgs, 1997, University of Arizona Press
ISBN 978-0816518302

From a special meeting convened to re-evaluate what is known about our neighbor after three decades of missions comes Venus II: Geology, Geophysics, Atmosphere, and Solar Wind Environment. The volume's 36 chapters offer the diverse, interdisciplinary views of Venus from more than 100 scientists on topics such as lightning, cloud chemistry, rock weathering, volcanoes and craters. The CD-ROM accompanying Venus II incorporates text, data, video clips and graphics s to supplement the wealth of information contained in this source.
