  • [1] We have developed a thermal model of Titan's interior to study changes in volume during partial freezing or melting of a subsurface ocean due to heat flux variations from the interior. We find that the long-term cooling of Titan can cause global volume contraction ΔV/V ∼0.01. We then simulate two-dimensional contractional deformation of Titan's icy lithosphere, finding that contractional deformation can produce tectonic activity and fold formation. Folds could potentially achieve a… CONTINUE READING
