Geodynamics : applications of continuum physics to geological problems
A comprehensive and quantitative study of the fundamental aspects of plate tectonics. Provides an introduction to heat flow, elasticity and flexure, fluid mechanics, faulting, gravity, and flow inExpand
Phanerozoic addition rates to the continental crust and crustal growth
Phanerozoic addition rates to the continental crust are calculated by using seismic profiles through magmatic arcs to measure the crustal volumes added during the active lifespans of the arcs. DataExpand
Magnetism and thermal evolution of the terrestrial planets
Of the terrestrial planets, Earth and probably Mercury possess substantial intrinsic magnetic fields generated by core dynamos, while Venus and Mars apparently lack such fields. Thermal histories areExpand
Thermal structure of Jupiter's atmosphere near the edge of a 5‐μm hot spot in the north equatorial belt
Thermal structure of the atmosphere of Jupiter was measured from 1029 km above to 133 km below the 1-bar level during entry and descent of the Galileo probe. The data confirm the hot exosphereExpand
Mantle Convection in the Earth and Planets
Mantle Convection in the Earth and Planets is a comprehensive synthesis of all aspects of mantle convection within the Earth, the terrestrial planets, the Moon, and the Galilean satellites ofExpand
The continental crustal age distribution: Methods of determining mantle separation ages from Sm‐Nd isotopic data and application to the southwestern United States
Samarium-neodymium isotope systematics provide a means of determining the age of the continental crust, where ”age“ refers to the amount of time the crustal rock material has been isolated from theExpand
Oceans in the icy Galilean satellites of Jupiter
Abstract Equilibrium models of heat transfer by heat conduction and thermal convection show that the three satellites of Jupiter—Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto—may have internal oceans underneath iceExpand
Europa's differentiated internal structure: inferences from four Galileo encounters.
Radio Doppler data from four encounters of the Galileo spacecraft with the jovian moon Europa have been used to refine models of Europa's interior, but the data cannot eliminate the possibility of a uniform mixture of dense silicate and metal beneath the water ice-liquid shell. Expand
