An umbrella-shaped plume detected above Io confirms that Io is volcanically active. Preliminary analyses of eight such eruptive plumes are presented. 

Dynamics of volcanic plumes on Io

Ballistic and aerodynamic models are proposed to explain the volcanic plumes on Io, with particular reference to Plumes 1 and 3 which seem to have the same origin.

Volcanic origin of the eruptive plumes on io.

A quadruple long exposure of Io in eclipse exhibits faint auroral emission from the eruptive plumes, and heat from the interior of Io appears to be the predominant source of energy in the plumes.

Volcanic resurfacing rates and implications for volatiles on Io

Resurfacing rates and surface ages on Io are estimated, together with the material ejection and deposition rates of the active volcanic plumes.

The role of SO2 in volcanism on Io

Io and Earth are the only planetary bodies known to be volcanically active; the energetics of the eruptive plumes on Io have important structural implications and are closely linked with the presence

Volcanic features of Io

Volcanic activity is apparently higher on Io than on any other body in the Solar System. Its volcanic landforms can be compared with features on Earth to indicate the type of volcanism present on Io.

Filamentation of volcanic plumes on the Jovian satellite Io

Volcanic plumes on the Jovian satellite Io may be a visible manifestation of a plasma-arc discharge phenomenon. The amount of power in the plasma arc (∼1011 W) is not enough to account for all the

Volcanic eruptions on Io

Nine eruption plumes were observed over a period of 6 1/2 days during the Voyager 1 encounter with Io. During the Voyager 2 encounter, 4 months later, eight of these eruptions were still active. The

Stealth plumes on Io

We suggest that Io's eruptive activity may include a class of previously undetected SO2 geysers. The thermodynamic models for the eruptive plumes discovered by Voyager involve low to moderate entropy

Discovery of Currently Active Extraterrestrial Volcanism

Two volcanic plumes were discovered on an image of Io taken as part of the Voyager optical navigation effort. This is the first evidence of active volcanism on any body in the solar system other than

Melting of Io by Tidal Dissipation

The dissipation of tidal energy in Jupiter's satellite Io is likely to have melted a major fraction of the mass. Consequences of a largely molten interior may be evident in pictures of Io's surface

Photometric evidence on long-term stability of albedo and colour markings on Io

Historical measurements of the albedo and colour of Io are examined for evidence of major resurfacing events.

The cameras aboard Voyager 1 have provided a closeup view of the Jupiter system, revealing heretofore unknown characteristics and phenomena associated with the planet's atmosphere and the surfaces of
