The Detection of Seismicity on Icy Ocean Worlds by Single‐Station and Small‐Aperture Seismometer Arrays
Future missions carrying seismometer payloads to icy ocean worlds will measure global and local seismicity to determine where the ice shell is seismically active. We use two locations, a seismically
Exploration of Icy Ocean Worlds Using Geophysical Approaches
Geophysics-focused missions and improved geophysical data sets are critical for the future exploration of icy ocean worlds. Of particular interest is the exploration of the Galilean moon, Europa, and
Holistic Approach for Studying Planetary Hydrospheres: Gibbs Representation of Ices Thermodynamics, Elasticity, and the Water Phase Diagram to 2,300 MPa
Gibbs energy representations for ices II, III, V, and VI are reported. These were constructed using new measurements of volumes at high pressure over a range of low temperatures combined with
Science Goals and Objectives for the Dragonfly Titan Rotorcraft Relocatable Lander
NASA’s Dragonfly mission will send a rotorcraft lander to the surface of Titan in the mid-2030s. Dragonfly's science themes include investigation of Titan’s prebiotic chemistry, habitability, and
Seismology in the Solar System
Where could we do seismology on other planets and why should we do it?

Es freut mich wirklich sehr, Ihnen im 65. Jahr des Bestehens unserer wissenschaftlichen Gesellschaft hiermit den ersten Jahresbericht – eine Retrospektive auf das Vorjahr – präsentieren zu dürfen.


Seismic Wave Propagation in Icy Ocean Worlds
Seismology was developed on Earth and shaped our model of the Earth's interior over the twentieth century. With the exception of the Philae lander, all in situ extraterrestrial seismological effort
Global climate imprint on seismic noise
In the absence of earthquakes, oceanic microseisms are the strongest signals recorded by seismic stations. Using the GEOSCOPE global seismic network, we show that the secondary microseism spectra
Expected Seismicity and the Seismic Noise Environment of Europa
Seismic data will be a vital geophysical constraint on internal structure of Europa if we land instruments on the surface. Quantifying expected seismic activity on Europa both in terms of large,
Vital Signs: Seismology of Icy Ocean Worlds.
It is argued, by analogy with the Moon, that detectable seismic activity should occur frequently on tidally flexed ocean worlds and that seismic experiments could be less complex and less susceptible to noise than prior or planned planetary seismology investigations of the Moon or Mars.
Origin of deep ocean microseisms by using teleseismic body waves
Recent studies of oceanic microseisms have concentrated on fundamental mode surface waves. Extraction of fundamental mode Rayleigh and Love wave Green functions from station-station correlations of
How ocean waves rock the Earth: two mechanisms explain microseisms with periods 3 to 300 s
Microseismic activity, recorded everywhere on Earth, is largely due to ocean waves. Recent progress has clearly identified sources of microseisms in the most energetic band, with periods from 3 to 10
Wind-driven surface waves on Titan
The surface of Titan represents the largest surface area in the solar system essentially unexplored, although recent observations from Hubble Space Telescope and ground-based telescopes using
Long‐period seismology on Europa: 1. Physically consistent interior models
[1] In order to examine the potential of seismology to determine the interior structure and properties of Europa, it is essential to calculate seismic velocities and attenuation for the range of
Empirical recurrence rates for ground motion signals on planetary surfaces
Ocean wave sources of seismic noise
[1] Noise with periods 3 to 10 s, ubiquitous in seismic records, is expected to be mostly generated by pairs of ocean wave trains of opposing propagation directions with half the seismic frequency.
