The migration of volatiles on the surfaces of Mercury and the Moon
Radar observations of Mercury have provided the startling discovery of the probable existence of substantial deposits of ices in permanently shaded polar regions [Butler et al., 1993; Harmon et al.,
Ice in the lunar polar regions
The idea that ice and other trapped volatiles exist in permanently shadowed regions near the lunar poles was proposed by Watson, Murray, and Brown [1961]. It is reexamined in the present paper, in
Jupiter: The Planet, Satellites and Magnetosphere
In June 2001, with the Galileo mission ending and the Cassini mission having encountered Jupiter on its way to Saturn, a conference (titled “Jupiter: The Planet, Satellites and Magnetosphere,”
Photometry of the Saturnian Satellites During Ring Plane Crossing
Abstract The first near-infrared (0.9 μm) photometric observations of Saturn's five medium-sized satellites were obtained during the August 1995 ring plane crossing with Palomar Observatory's 60-in.
