We have developed an evolutionary turbulent model of the Jovian subnebula consistent with the extended core accretion formation model of Jupiter. This model takes into account the vertical structure of the subnebula, as well as the evolution of the surface density as given by an α-disk model and is used to calculate the thermodynamical conditions in the subdisk for different values of the viscosity parameter. We show that the Jovian subnebula evolves in two different phases during its lifetime… Expand

Formation of Titan in Saturn's subnebula : constraints from Huygens probe measurements
We present an evolutionary turbulent model of the Saturn's subnebula consistent with recent core accretion formation models of Saturn. Our calculations are similar to those conducted in the case ofExpand
Formation of Jupiter and Conditions for Accretion of the Galilean Satellites
We present an overview of the formation of Jupiter and its associated circumplanetary disk. Jupiter forms via a combination of planetesimal accretion and gravitational accumulation of gas from theExpand
Constraints from deuterium on the formation of icy bodies in the Jovian system and beyond
We consider the role of deuterium as a potential marker of location and ambient conditions during the formation of small bodies in our Solar system. We concentrate in particular on the formation ofExpand
Pebble Accretion at the Origin of Water in Europa
Despite the fact that the observed gradient in water content among the Galilean satellites is globally consistent with a formation in a circum-Jovian disk on both sides of the snowline, theExpand
Models of the protosatellite disk of Saturn: Conditions for Titan’s formation
Models of the protosatellite accretion disk of Saturn are developed that satisfy cosmochemical constraints on the volatile abundances in the atmospheres of Saturn and Titan with due regard for theExpand
Water ice lines and the formation of giant moons around super-Jovian planets
Most of the exoplanets with known masses at Earth-like distances to Sun-like stars are heavier than Jupiter, which raises the question of whether such planets are accompanied by detectable, possiblyExpand
Origin of Europa and the Galilean Satellites
Europa is believed to have formed near the very end of Jupiter's own accretion, within a circumplanetary disk of gas and solid particles. We review the formation of the Galilean satellites in theExpand
A semi-analytical model for exploring Galilean satellites formation from a massive disk
Abstract A better knowledge of jovian satellites’ origins will bring light on the environment that surrounded Jupiter during its formation and can help us to understand the characteristics of thisExpand
A Gas-poor Planetesimal Capture Model for the Formation of Giant Planet Satellite Systems
Abstract Assuming that an unknown mechanism (e.g., gas turbulence) removes most of the subnebula gas disk in a timescale shorter than that for satellite formation, we develop a model for theExpand
The origin and evolution of Titan
Titan was formed as a regular satellite in a disk that was the outgrowth of the formation of Saturn itself. Unlike the Jovian system, Titan is alone in terms of its size and mass, notart of a systemExpand


An Evolutionary Turbulent Model of Saturn's Subnebula: Implications for the Origin of the Atmosphere of Titan
We have elaborated an evolutionary turbulent model of the subnebula of Saturn derived from that of Dubrulle (1993, Icarus 106, 59‐76) for the solar nebula, which is valid for a geometrically thinExpand
Formation of Jupiter by nucleated instability
Abstract Recently it has been shown that long-lasting self-gravitating protoplanets can arise from a gravitationally unstable protoplanetary gaseous disks (Mayer et al., 2002). We are convinced thatExpand
Constraints on the presence of volatiles in Ganymede and Callisto from an evolutionary turbulent model of the Jovian subnebula
Abstract We describe an evolutionary turbulent one-dimensional model of the Jovian subnebula, based on the previous models of the solar nebula of Dubrulle (Icarus 106 (1993) 59), and of Drouart etExpand
Formation of the Galilean Satellites: Conditions of Accretion
We examine formation conditions for the Galilean satellites in the context of models of late-stage giant planet accretion and satellite-disk interactions. We first reevaluate the current standard, inExpand

Origin and thermal evolution of icy satellites

Formation of the regular satellites of giant planets in an extended gaseous nebula II: satellite migration and survival
For a satellite to survive in the disk the time scale of satellite migration must be longer than the time scale for gas dissipation. For large satellites (∼1000 km) migration is dominated by the gasExpand
Models of giant planet formation with migration and disc evolution

Formation of the regular satellites of giant planets in an extended gaseous nebula I: subnebula model and accretion of satellites
We model the subnebulae of Jupiter and Saturn wherein satellite accretion took place. We expect each giant planet subnebula to be composed of an optically thick (given gaseous opacity) inner regionExpand
