About this product
- DescriptionEach naturally occurring isotope has a tale to tell about the history of matter, and each has its own special place in cosmic evolution. This volume aims to grasp the origins of our material world by looking at the abundance of the elements and their isotopes, and how this is interpreted within the theory of nucleosynthesis. Each isotope of elements from Hydrogen to Gallium is covered in detail. For each, there is an historical and chemical introduction, and a table of those isotopes that are abundant in the natural world. Information given on each isotope includes its nuclear properties, solar system abundance, nucleosynthesis in stars, astromical observations, and isotopic amalies in premolar grains and solar-system solids. The book is suitable for astromers, physicists, chemists, geologists and planetary scientists, and contains a glossary of essential technical terms.
