Recent Greenland Ice Mass Loss by Drainage System from Satellite Gravity Observations
Mass changes of the Greenland Ice Sheet resolved by drainage system regions were derived from a local mass concentration analysis of NASA–Deutsches Zentrum für Luftund Raumfahrt Gravity Recovery and… Expand
Internal structure and early thermal evolution of Mars from Mars Global Surveyor topography and gravity.
Topography and gravity measured by the Mars Global Surveyor have enabled determination of the global crust and upper mantle structure of Mars. The planet displays two distinct crustal zones that do… Expand
The global topography of Mars and implications for surface evolution.
Elevations measured by the Mars Orbiter Laser Altimeter have yielded a high-accuracy global map of the topography of Mars. Dominant features include the low northern hemisphere, the Tharsis province,… Expand
The Crust of the Moon as Seen by GRAIL
The Holy GRAIL? The gravity field of a planet provides a view of its interior and thermal history by revealing areas of different density. GRAIL, a pair of satellites that act as a highly sensitive… Expand
Topography of the Moon from the Clementine lidar
Range measurements from the lidar instrument carried aboard the Clementine spacecraft have been used to produce an accurate global topographic model of the Moon. This paper discusses the function of… Expand
The Development of the NASA GSFC and NIMA Joint Geopotential Model
The NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, the National Imagery and Mapping Agency (NIMA; formerly the Defense Mapping Agency or DMA) and The Ohio State University have collaborated to produce EGM96, an… Expand

Gravity Field and Internal Structure of Mercury from MESSENGER
Mercury Inside and Out The MESSENGER spacecraft orbiting Mercury has been in a ∼12-hour eccentric, near-polar orbit since 18 March 2011 (see the Perspective by McKinnon). Smith et al. (p. 214,… Expand
Initial observations from the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter (LOLA)
As of June 19, 2010, the Lunar Orbiter Laser Altimeter, an instrument on the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, has collected over 2.0 × 10^9 measurements of elevation that collectively represent the… Expand
The Shape and Internal Structure of the Moon from the Clementine Mission
Global topographic and gravitational field models derived from data collected by the Clementine spacecraft reveal a new picture of the shape and internal structure of the moon. The moon exhibits a… Expand
