Radar Signal Penetration and Horizons Detection on Europa Through Numerical Simulations

Abstract

We propose a strategy to evaluate the performance of a radar sounder for the subsurface exploration of the Europa icy crust and, in particular, the possibility to detect liquid water at the base of the ice shell. The approach integrates the information coming from experimental measurements of the dielectric properties of icy materials, thermal models… (More)
