Global Mineralogical and Aqueous Mars History Derived from OMEGA/Mars Express Data
Global mineralogical mapping of Mars by the Observatoire pour la Mineralogie, l'Eau, les Glaces et l'Activité (OMEGA) instrument on the European Space Agency's Mars Express spacecraft provides newExpand
Mass–radius curve for extrasolar Earth-like planets and ocean planets
Abstract By comparison with the Earth-like planets and the large icy satellites of the Solar System, one can model the internal structure of extrasolar planets. The input parameters are theExpand
Transiting exoplanets from the CoRoT space mission VIII. CoRoT-7b: the first Super-Earth with measured radius
Aims. We report the discovery of very shallow (ΔF/F ≈ 3.4× 10 −4 ), periodic dips in the light curve of an active V = 11.7 G9V star observed by the CoRoT satellite, which we interpret as caused by aExpand
Ceres: Evolution and current state
[1] We modeled several thermal evolution scenarios for Ceres to explore the nature of large, wet protoplanets and to predict current-day evidence that might be found by close inspection, such as byExpand
Episodic outgassing as the origin of atmospheric methane on Titan
TLDR
This work shows that episodic outgassing of methane stored as clathrate hydrates within an icy shell above an ammonia-enriched water ocean is the most likely explanation for Titan's atmospheric methane, and predicts that future fly-bys should reveal the existence of both a subsurface water ocean and a rocky core, and should detect more cryovolcanic edifices.

Tidally heated convection: Constraints on Europa's ice shell thickness
[1] The thickness of Europa's ice shell is constrained with numerical experiments of thermal convection, including heterogeneous tidal heating. Thermal convection occurs in the stagnant lid regimeExpand
A new family of planets? Ocean-Planets
A new family of planets is considered which is in between the rocky terrestrial planets and the gaseous giants, “Ocean-Planets.” We present the possible formation, composition and internal structureExpand
Tidal dissipation within large icy satellites: Applications to Europa and Titan
This paper describes a new approach based on variational principles to calculate the radial distribution of tidal energy dissipation in any satellite. The advantage of the model with respect toExpand
Iapetus’ geophysics : rotation rate, shape, and equatorial ridge
Iapetus has preserved evidence that constrains the modeling of its geophysical history from the time of its accretion until now. The evidence is (a) its present 79.33-day rotation or spin rate, (b)Expand
The Cassini Visual And Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (Vims) Investigation
The Cassini visual and infrared mapping spectrometer (VIMS) investigation is a multidisciplinary study of the Saturnian system. Visual and near-infrared imaging spectroscopy and high-speedExpand
