Strong tidal dissipation in Io and Jupiter from astrometric observations
Io is the volcanically most active body in the Solar System and has a large surface heat flux. The geological activity is thought to be the result of tides raised by Jupiter, but it is not knownExpand

JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE): An ESA mission to orbit Ganymede and to characterise the Jupiter system
Past exploration of Jupiter's diverse satellite system has forever changed our understanding of the unique environments to be found around gas giants, both in our solar system and beyond. TheExpand

Geodesy constraints on the interior structure and composition of Mars
Abstract Knowledge of the interior structure of Mars is of fundamental importance to the understanding of its past and present state as well as its future evolution. The most prominent interiorExpand

Martian gravity field model and its time variations from MGS and Odyssey data
Abstract We present results of several years of research and data processing aimed at modelling the Mars gravity field and its longest wavelength time variations. The new solution includes trackingExpand

On the librations and tides of large icy satellites
Abstract The gravitational force exerted by a central planet deforms its orbiting moons (tides) and periodically changes their rotation (librations). Tides and librations of large icy satellitesExpand

The interior structure of Mercury and its core sulfur content
Abstract Depth-dependent interior structure models of Mercury are calculated for several plausible chemical compositions of the core and of the mantle. For those models, we compute the associatedExpand

Mercury's tides and interior structure
[1] An accurate tide-generating potential series for Mercury has been calculated on the basis of VSOP87 ephemerides for the solar system planets. Due to the 3:2 spin-orbit resonance, the tides onExpand

The librations, shape, and icy shell of Europa
Europa, the smallest of the Galilean satellites, has a young icy surface and most likely contains an internal ocean. The primary objective of possible future missions to Europa is the unambiguousExpand

Unstable non-radial modes in radial pulsators: theory and an example
ABSTRA C T We study the possibility of the excitation of non-radial oscillations in classical pulsating stars. The stability of an RR Lyrae model is examined through non-adiabatic non-radialExpand

Interior structure of terrestrial planets : Modeling Mars' mantle and its electromagnetic, geodetic, and seismic properties
[1] We present a new procedure to describe the one-dimensional thermodynamical state and mineralogy of any Earth-like planetary mantle, with Mars as an example. The model parameters are directlyExpand
