A Study of the Sulfur Isotopic Composition of Martian Meteorites
ABSTRACT Title of Document: A STUDY OF THE SULFUR ISOTOPIC COMPOSITION OF MARTIAN METEORITES Heather B. Franz, Ph.D., 2012 Directed By: Professor James Farquhar, Department of Geology and ESSIC Sulfur is an ...
Assessing the Oxidative History of Miller Range Martian Meteorites
Miller Range (MIL) Martian meteorites are oxidized nakhlites. Early studies attribute their oxidation to reduction-oxidation reactions involving assimilated sulfate. I utilize the sulfur isotope and major element composition ...
Planetary Seismology using Single-Station and Small-Aperture Arrays: Implications for Mars and Ocean Worlds
Studying geophysical station deployment on Earth is essential preparation for future geophysical experiments elsewhere in the solar system. Here, I investigated how single-station seismometers and small-aperture seismic ...
The Seismic Signatures of Recently Formed Impact Craters on Mars
(Journal of Geophysical Research Planets, 2019-09)
We investigated the seismic signatures of recent impact crater clusters on Mars that would be recorded by the InSight Seismic Experiment for Interior Structure (SEIS) seismometers. We used a database of 77 measured and ...
DYNAMIC MELT PROCESSES IN THE LITHOSPHERES OF MARS AND IO
The interior structures of planetary bodies beyond the Earth are broadly unknown. Our observational capacity is largely limited to surface imagery from spacecraft. The work presented in this dissertation uses novel modeling ...
Investigating the Internal Structure of Earth and Mars with Seismic Body Waves
Seismic waves propagating through the interior of planetary bodies arepowerful imaging tools for revealing a high-resolution picture of their internal structures. Owing to the abundant seismic data on Earth, seismology has ...
