The PLATO 2.0 mission
PLATO 2.0 has recently been selected for ESA’s M3 launch opportunity (2022/24). Providing accurate key planet parameters (radius, mass, density and age) in statistical numbers, it addressesExpand

The interior structure of Mars: Implications from SNC meteorites
Two end-member models of Mars' present interior structure are presented: the first model is optimized to satisfy the geochemical data derived from the SNC meteorites in terms of the bulk chondriticExpand

Subsurface oceans and deep interiors of medium-sized outer planet satellites and large trans-neptunian objects
Abstract The detection of induced magnetic fields in the vicinity of the jovian satellites Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto is one of the most surprising findings of the Galileo mission to Jupiter. TheExpand

Implications from Galileo Observations on the Interior Structure and Chemistry of the Galilean Satellites
Abstract Data from the recent gravity measurements by the Galileo mission are used to construct wide ranges of interior structure and composition models for the Galilean satellites of Jupiter. TheseExpand

Interior structure models and tidal Love numbers of Titan
[1] Interior models of a differentiated Titan with an internal ammonia-water ocean and chondritic radiogenic heat production in an undifferentiated rock + iron core have been calculated. We assumeExpand

Tidal Dissipation on Titan
Abstract Tidal dissipation may constrain the nature of the surface and interior of Titan. Provided the surface of Titan is covered by satellite-wide hydrocarbon seas and oceans, the solid body ofExpand

Geophysical constraints on the composition and structure of the Martian interior
[1] Most recent Martian interior structure models are based on the planet's polar moment of inertia C, although the mean moment of inertia I is required for constructing spherically symmetric modelsExpand

The interior structure of Mercury: what we know, what we expect from BepiColombo
Abstract The BepiColombo mission is planned to very accurately measure the gravity field, the topography, and the tidal Love numbers of Mercury. In this paper, we review our present knowledge of theExpand

Rocky super-Earth interiors. Structure and internal dynamics of CoRoT-7b and Kepler-10b
Aims. We present interior structure models of the recently discovered exoplanets CoRoT-7b and Kepler-10b addressing their bulk compositions, present thermal states, and internal dynamics. WeExpand
