Interior structure models and tidal Love numbers of Titan

  title={Interior structure models and tidal Love numbers of Titan},
  author={Frank Sohl and Hauke Hussmann and B. Schwentker and Tilman Spohn},
[1] Interior models of a differentiated Titan with an internal ammonia-water ocean and chondritic radiogenic heat production in an undifferentiated rock + iron core have been calculated. We assume thermal and mechanical equilibrium and calculate the structure of the interior as a function of the thickness of an ice I layer on top of the ocean as well as the moment of inertia factor and the tidal Love numbers for comparison with Cassini gravity data. The Love numbers are linearly dependent on… CONTINUE READING
