Geodesy constraints on the interior structure and composition of Mars
Abstract Knowledge of the interior structure of Mars is of fundamental importance to the understanding of its past and present state as well as its future evolution. The most prominent interiorExpand

Enceladus's and Dione's floating ice shells supported by minimum stress isostasy
Enceladus' gravity and shape have been explained in terms of a thick isostatic ice shell floating on a global ocean, in contradiction of the thin shell implied by librations. Here we propose a newExpand

The interior structure of Mercury and its core sulfur content
Abstract Depth-dependent interior structure models of Mercury are calculated for several plausible chemical compositions of the core and of the mantle. For those models, we compute the associatedExpand

Constraints on Mimas’ interior from Cassini ISS libration measurements
Like our Moon, the majority of the solar system’s satellites are locked in a 1:1 spin-orbit resonance; on average, these satellites show the same face toward the planet at a constant rotation rateExpand

Mercury’s inner core size and core-crystallization regime
Abstract Earth-based radar observation of Mercury’s rotation vector combined with gravity observation by the MESSENGER spacecraft yield a measure of Mercury’s moment of inertia and the amplitude ofExpand

Constraints on the coupling at the core-mantle and inner core boundaries inferred from nutation observations
SUMMARY We present an inversion of nutation observations in terms of parameters characterizing the Earth’s interior properties. We use a Bayesian inversion in the time-domain, allowing us to takeExpand

The librations, shape, and icy shell of Europa
Europa, the smallest of the Galilean satellites, has a young icy surface and most likely contains an internal ocean. The primary objective of possible future missions to Europa is the unambiguousExpand

A generalized Bayesian inference method for constraining the interiors of super Earths and sub-Neptunes
Aims. We aim to present a generalized Bayesian inference method for constraining interiors of super Earths and sub-Neptunes. Our methodology succeeds in quantifying the degeneracy and correlation ofExpand

Interior structure of terrestrial planets : Modeling Mars' mantle and its electromagnetic, geodetic, and seismic properties
[1] We present a new procedure to describe the one-dimensional thermodynamical state and mineralogy of any Earth-like planetary mantle, with Mars as an example. The model parameters are directlyExpand

The effect of tides and an inner core on the forced longitudinal libration of Mercury
Abstract Mercury's longitudinal libration at a period of 88 days depends on the moment of inertia of the planet's silicate outer part and as such contains information on the interior structure andExpand
