About the Authors
  • Seismology is a highly effective tool for investigating the internal structure of the Earth. Similar techniques have also successfully been used to study other planetary bodies (planetary seismology), the Sun (helioseismology), and other stars (asteroseismology). Despite obvious differences between stars and planetary bodies, these disciplines share many similarities and together form a coherent field of scientific research. This unique book takes a transdisciplinary approach to seismology and seismic imaging, reviewing the most recent developments in these extraterrestrial contexts. With contributions from leading scientists, this timely volume systematically outlines the techniques used in observation, data processing, and modelling for asteroseismology, helioseismology, and planetary seismology, drawing comparisons with seismic methods used in geophysics. Important recent discoveries in each discipline are presented. With an emphasis on transcending the traditional boundaries of astronomy, solar, planetary and Earth sciences, this novel book is an invaluable resource and reference for undergraduates, postgraduates and academics.

    • Mathematical equations are kept to a minimum for most chapters, making this an accessible resource for undergraduates, postgraduates and researchers
    • Provides insights into upcoming space missions and the next-generation science in planetary science and astronomy
    • The first systematic survey of the methodologies and recent scientific advances in extraterrestrial seismology, including its links with terrestrial seismic methods

    "… extensive, interesting, and useful… This is the most widely embracing discussion of the subject between two covers, and can be useful to anyone involved in extraterrestrial seismology who wishes to improve their expertise by extending the arena of their knowledge beyond their own subdiscipline."
    Douglas Gough, The Observatory
