The Hadean Crust : Evidence from > 4 Ga Zircons
A review of continental growth models leaves open the possibilities that Earth during the Hadean Eon (∼4.5–4.0 Ga) was characterized by massive early crust or essentially none at all. Without supportExpand

The second law of thermodynamics and the global climate system: A review of the maximum entropy production principle
[1] The long-term mean properties of the global climate system and those of turbulent fluid systems are reviewed from a thermodynamic viewpoint. Two general expressions are derived for a rate ofExpand

Physical properties of the organic aerosols and clouds on Titan
Abstract Titan's haze is optically thick in the visible, with an optical depth at 0.5 μm of about three. The haze varies with latitude in a seasonal cycle and has a detached upper layer.Expand

Titan's Surface, Revealed by HST Imaging
We present for the first time relative albedo maps of Titan's surface. The maps were made from images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope's planetary camera (295 km per pixel) through atmosphericExpand

  • 1 February 2001
Temperature contrasts between warm tropics and cool high latitudes depends on how eciently heat is transported by the atmosphere (and oceans) from the trop- ics. This heat transport is generallyExpand

The Sand Seas of Titan: Cassini RADAR Observations of Longitudinal Dunes
The most recent Cassini RADAR images of Titan show widespread regions (up to 1500 kilometers by 200 kilometers) of near-parallel radar-dark linear features that appear to be seas of longitudinalExpand

An asymmetric distribution of lakes on Titan as a possible consequence of orbital forcing
A set of lakes filled or partially filled with liquid hydrocarbon and empty lake basins have been discovered in the high latitudes of Saturn's moon Titan. These features were mapped by the radarExpand

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

On the volatile inventory of Titan from isotopic abundances in nitrogen and methane.
We analyze recently published nitrogen and hydrogen isotopic data to constrain the initial volatile abundances on Saturn's giant moon Titan. The nitrogen data are interpreted in terms of a model ofExpand
