Three‐dimensional seismic structure and physical properties of the crust and shallow mantle beneath the East Pacific Rise at 9°30'N
The seismic structure of the crust and shallow mantle beneath the East Pacific Rise near 9°3O′N is imaged by inverting P wave travel time data. Our tomographic results constrain for the first timeExpand

Seismic structure of the Iceland mantle plume
Oceanic hotspots are generally accepted to be the manifestations of plumes of hot, upwelling mantle material1,2, but the nature of such flows remains enigmatic. Iceland, for example, is one of theExpand

Localization of gravity and topography: constraints on the tectonics and mantle dynamics of Venus
SUMMARY We develop a method for spatio-spectral localization of harmonic data on a sphere and use it to interpret recent high-resolution global estimates of the gravity and topography of Venus in theExpand

Internal and Tectonic Evolution of Mercury
Mercury’s geological and internal evolution presents an interesting enigma: are there conditions that allow for both apparently limited radial contraction over the last 4 billion years andExpand

Seismic evidence for a lower-mantle origin of the Iceland plume
Iceland, one of the most thoroughly investigated hotspots, is generally accepted to be the manifestation of an upwelling mantle plume. Yet whether the plume originates from the lower mantle or from aExpand

The gravity field, orientation, and ephemeris of Mercury from MESSENGER observations after three years in orbit
We have analyzed 3 years of radio tracking data from the MESSENGER spacecraft in orbit around Mercury and determined the gravity field, planetary orientation, and ephemeris of the innermost planet.Expand

Origin and thermal evolution of Mars.
The thermal evolution of Mars is governed by subsolidus mantle convection beneath a thick lithosphere. Models of the interior evolution are developed by parameterizing mantle convective heatExpand
