about

This volume of proceedings contains research and review papers concerning the dynamics of asteroids and comets and especially their interactions with the Earth as signified by geological and historical records. Remembering what may have happened to the dinosaurs, but being careful to avoid creating irrational scares, the papers attempt to improve our knowledge of dynamics of the small objects of the Solar System and to assess in particular their effects on the Earth environment and the evolution of life. This book will be an up-to-date source of information to astronomers and dynamicists interested in the dynamics of small bodies of the Solar system, as well as to geologists and paleobiologists interested in the effects on the Earth of extraterrestrial bombardment by asteroids and comets.
