  • Photopolarimeter-Radiometer (PPR) maps of daytime temperatures on Ganymede at a resolution of 220 kilometers show the expected anticorrelation with albedo, but morning temperatures were about 10 kelvin warmer than expected. Europa had a subsolar temperature of 128 kelvin and a lower effective thermal inertia than either Ganymede or Callisto, and Io's night side was cooler than predicted by recent models, perhaps requiring revision of heat-flow estimates. The lowest 250-millibar temperatures in… CONTINUE READING
