TECTONICS OF ICY SATELLITES DRIVEN BY MELTING AND CRYSTALLIZATION OF WATER BODIES INSIDE THEIR ICE SHELLS
Enceladus and Europa are icy satellites that currently support bodies of liquid water in the outer solar system Additionally, they show signs of being geologically active. Developing numerical models informed by observations ...
Lithospheric Extension on Venus: how to form narrow rifts
The Venusian rifts of Devana and Ganis Chasmata have been noted for their similar morphology to some rifts on Earth (i.e., the East African rift system). These are narrow rifts that are associated with localized deformation. ...
Highly Siderophile Elements, 187Re-187Os and 182Hf-182W Isotopic Systematics of Early Solar System Materials: Constraining the Early Evolution of Chondritic and Achondritic Parent Bodies
Highly siderophile element (HSE) abundances and 187Re-187Os isotopic systematics for H chondrites and ungrouped achondrites, as well as 182Hf-182W isotopic systematics of H and CR chondrites are reported. Achondrite ...
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 ...
Geophysical Exploration of Terrestrial and Lunar Volcanic Fields
Planetary analogs are environments representative of current or past conditions on other planetary bodies. My research uses terrestrial volcanic fields as lunar analogs to conduct geophysical studies on the subsurface ...
