Musen of the Cincinnati Observatory had kindly furnished ephemeris positions of JX and JXI, and an ephemeris of JIX by Dr. Samuel Herrick of the University of California in Los Angeles was available.1 The location of JVIII was… 

Cladistical Analysis of the Jovian and Saturnian Satellite Systems

This work performs the first cladistical study of objects in a planetary science context, using the orbital, physical and compositional characteristics of satellites to classify the objects in the Jovian and Saturnian systems.
