The satellites are revealed as four visually striking and geologically diverse planetary bodies: Ios volcanic lavas and plumes and towering mountains- Europas fissured ice surface- the craters, fractures and polar caps of Ganymede- and the giant impact basins, desiccated plains and icy pinnacles of Callisto. Featuring images taken from the recent Galileo mission, this atlas is a comprehensive mapping reference guide for researchers. It contains 65 global and regional maps, nearly 250 high-resolution mosaics, and images taken at resolutions from 500 meters to as high as 6 meters.
