The full-color pictures are taken in airplane- and cross-polarized mild and mirrored gentle, and organized to spotlight textural adaptations in meteorites. Specimens are grouped to teach the results of accelerating thermal alteration and surprise, in addition to adaptations in chondrule measurement and kind. Chapters on iron meteorites, pallasites and mesosiderites are incorporated, photographed as mounts in mirrored mild, to teach the diversity of textural adaptations that accompany those meteorites. photographs from the e-book will be downloaded from www.cambridge.org/9780521840354.
