PLANETARY ENGINEERING BIBLIOGRAPHY (Revised January 2011).

INTRODUCTION.

A listing of literature related to planetary engineering follows below. The entries are placed into one of three categories:

1. GEOENGINEERING.

2. TERRAFORMING.

3. ASTROPHYSICAL ENGINEERING/OTHER.

Definitions of planetary engineering, geoengineering and terraforming are taken from Terraforming: Engineering Planetary Environments (Fogg, 1995).

Astrophysical Engineering is taken to represent proposed activities, relating to future habitation, that are envisaged to occur on a scale greater than that of "conventional" planetary engineering.

It is thought that the entries related to terraforming are near-comprehensive and include almost everything substantive written on the subject. However, this does not mean that all entries are essential to a programme of study. Researchers specifically interested in the terraforming of Mars will find a personal recommendation of the most essential literature in Section 2 indicated so .
