A complete visual reference for meteorite classification, this atlas combines high resolution optical microscope images with detailed descriptions. It provides a systematic account of meteorites and their most important classification parameters, making it an essential resource for meteorite researchers. Each chapter starts with a description of the meteorite class, with a summary of the mineralogical, chemical and isotopic characteristics of the group. The full-color images are taken in plane- and cross-polarized light and reflected light, and arranged to highlight textural variations in meteorites. Specimens are grouped to show the effects of increasing thermal alteration and shock, as well as variations in chondrule size and type. Chapters on iron meteorites, pallasites and mesosiderites are included, photographed as mounts in reflected light, to show the range of textural variations that accompany these meteorites. Images from the book can be downloaded from www.cambridge.org/9780521840354.

Review:

'I recommend this book highly for its systematic and graphic approach to meteorite classification and feel it is an essential buy for all meteorite researchers. The images would be appreciated by a wider readership as well.' Sara Russell, The Observatory

'[This book] features color pictures of each of the many types of meteorites and fairly short descriptions of them. If one is fortunate enough to find a meteorite, this book is likely to identify the type. ... This book will probably be most useful as part of a library with strong collections in astronomy or geology.' A. R. Upgren, Choice

'... a complete visual reference for meteorite classification, combining full colour images with very detailed descriptions ... goes well beyond the simple scope of just providing a systematic account of such celestial debris and their classification parameters. While reporting the results of laboratory precise measurements of meteorite components, which complements the now available accurate astronomical observations, it opens a window on the greater understanding occurred in the last two decades about the processes that led to the formation of the Sun and Solar System. ... The authors focus on specific features that will aid in recognition and classification of meteorites ... The introductory text then reports the main mineral components, the texture of the samples and their chemistry, including oxygen isotopic composition. ... Although the present book is an essential reference for meteorite researchers, the beautiful full colour images present in it, as well as clear explanations, will be certainly appreciated by a much wider readership.' Salvatore Esposito, Contemporary Physics
