This paper reviews the properties of vapor-deposited water ice in connection with icy surfaces in the outer solar system. The emphasis is on knowledge gained during the last decade, and on the properties of the amorphous phase, especially those a$ected by the presence of microporosity. The paper discusses the role played by the properties of di$erent phases of ice and the e$ect of irradiation on the icy surfaces of satellites in the outer solar system: sputtering, phase transformation, the… CONTINUE READING
