Detailed Product Description

2005, 1st edition. 224 pp, 120 full color photos. Using highly specialized, advanced digital satellite imaging - first made possible in the year 2000 with the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission - this book presents an astounding collection of images of the Earth's mountain ranges carefully compiled over the course of five years by the German Remote Sensing Data Center. Now available to the public for the first time here, the most majestic peaks on all seven continents are visible as they never would be to the naked eye-in views taken from 500 to 15 miles above the Earth that reveal the entire mountain range at once, unobstructed by clouds, haze, and the refraction of light.

 
NEW LARGE FORMAT HARDCOVER WITH DUST JACKET, NO REMAINDER MARK.
 
SIGNED by Reinhold Messner

Mountains from Space is much more than a collection of extraordinary pictures; it is a serious work of nonfiction about every important aspect of these fascinating geological formations, from their genesis by volcanic activity to their specific sociological features. Contributions by esteemed scientists and mountaineers alike highlight this provocative study of our planet Earth. Large format hardcover.

About the Author: Professor Stefan Dech holds a teaching chair for remote exploration at the University of Würzburg, Germany. Rüdiger Glaser is a climate researcher who holds the teaching chair for physical geography at the University of Freiburg, Germany. World-renowned mountaineer Reinhold Messner shares his unique perspective and experience along with other mountaineers like Stephen Venables, Christophe Profit, and Alexander Huber.

Extra postage required for Priority Mail or International Mail.
