The Earth and the Moon

We start our discussion of the planets with the one with which we are most familiar, the Earth. In understanding the processes that are important on the Earth, both now and in the past, we are setting a framework for our understanding of the other planets. Therefore, in this chapter we will develop many of the ideas that should apply to all planets, both in terms of what properties are important and how we measure them.
