Physico-chemical models of the internal structure of partially differentiated Titan
We analyze models of the internal structure of Titan, a large icy satellite of the Saturn system. Calculations are carried out using information on the mass, mean density, moment of inertia, orbital
Matching of Models of the Internal Structure and Thermal Regime of Partially Differentiated Titan with Gravity Field
The problem of matching models of the internal structure of partially differentiated Titan with experimentally measured values of Love number k2 (Iess et al., 2012; Durante et al., 2019) according to
Interior structure models and tidal Love numbers of Titan
[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
Modeling of the thermal evolution of the cores of icy giant satellites
Questions on the composition, aggregate state, size and physical properties of the giant planets satellites cores, their thermal evolution, as well as the mechanisms of their formation, are still the
Thermal convection in the outer shell of large icy satellites
Evolution of large icy satellites is controlled by heat transfer across the outer ice I layer. After the core overturn a possible structure consists of a silicate core and a shell of molten ices. As

THE ROLE OF METHANOL IN THE CRYSTALLIZATION OF TITAN'S PRIMORDIAL OCEAN
A key parameter that controls the crystallization of primordial oceans in large icy moons is the presence of anti-freeze compounds, which may have maintained primordial oceans over the age of the

The Cooling Rate of a Liquid Shell in Titan's Interior
Models describing the evolution of the primordial liquid layer in Titan's interior are presented using parameterized models. These models incorporate recent experimental data on the ammonia water
On the internal structure of the major satellites of the outer planets
The structures and thermal evolutions of the large icy satellites of the outer solar system are considered. It is shown (for bodies comparable in size and mass to the Galilean satellites, having
Viscosity of high-pressure ice VI and evolution and dynamics of Ganymede
Current models1–5 of the evolution of the jovian satellite, Ganymede, assume that it was formed by homogeneous accretion of water ice and silicate particles (about 50 mass%) with chondritic abundance
Tidal Dissipation on Titan
Abstract Tidal dissipation may constrain the nature of the surface and interior of Titan. Provided the surface of Titan is covered by satellite-wide hydrocarbon seas and oceans, the solid body of

Convection within the inner‐core and thermal implications
Estimation of the Rayleigh numbers of the inner-core leads to the conclusion that, even with low internal heating rates, this region of the Earth is convecting. This work presents an axisymmetrical
Thermal evolution models for the Earth
Thermal evolution models for the earth which are based on a parameterization of the convective heat transport are critically reexamined. Traditionally, it has been assumed that the temperature
