This is the second in an occasional column in which the author or editor of a book recently published by AGU will be interviewed and the book discussed.
A new AGU title Atmospheres in the Solar System: Comparative Aeronomy, edited by Michael Mendillo, Andrew Nagy and J.H. Waite, is a monograph on the subject of aeronomy, the study of upper atmospheres.
The authors offer an overview of the subject, providing existing theory, computational models, physical observations, future research possibilities, and the connections among planetary atmospheres. In this issue, Eos talks with Michael Mendillo, the lead editor of the monograph.
