The tectonics of Mercury
The probable tectonic history of Mercury and the relative sequence of events are discussed on the basis of data collected by the Mariner-10 spacecraft. Results indicate that Mercury's tectonicExpand
Convective instability in Europa's floating ice shell
Models of the tidally heated, floating ice shell proposed for the jovian satellite Europa generally find shell thicknesses less than 30 km. Past parameterized convection models indicated that suchExpand
Interior composition, structure and dynamics of the Galilean satellites
Gravitational fiels of the satellites: flyby determination of C22, gravity results; Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto - interior models; Thermal considerations in the maintenance of intra-ice oceans onExpand
Liquid water on Enceladus from observations of ammonia and 40 Ar in the plume
Since Cassini spacecraft images revealed plumes of water vapour and ice particles erupting from Saturn's moon Enceladus in 2006, the search for the water source has been on. Possibilities includeExpand
The Pluto system: Initial results from its exploration by New Horizons
New Horizons' views of Pluto The flyby of Pluto and its moon Charon by the New Horizons spacecraft generated news coverage around the world. Now Stern et al. report the first scientific results fromExpand
On convection in ice I shells of outer Solar System bodies, with detailed application to Callisto
It has been argued that the dominant non-Newtonian creep mechanisms of water ice make the ice shell above Callisto's ocean, and by inference all radiogenically heated ice I shells in the outer SolarExpand
Liquid water on Enceladus from observations of ammonia and 40Ar in the plume
This corrects the article DOI: 10.1038/nature08153
Plasma, plumes and rings: Saturn system dynamics as recorded in global color patterns on its midsize icy satellites
New global maps of the five inner midsize icy saturnian satellites, Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, and Rhea, have been constructed in three colors (UV, Green and near-IR) at resolutions of 1Expand
Cratering of planetary satellites
Recent findings concerning craters and cratering populations on the satellites of Jupiter and Saturn are discussed. Current understanding of cratering mechanics is reviewed with emphasis placed onExpand
