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 ...
Inference of Mass Anomalies in Planetary Interiors Using a Bayesian Global Gravity Field Inversion
Knowledge about the interior density distribution of a planetary body can constraingeophysical processes and reveal information about the origin and evolution of the body. Properties of this interior distribution can be ...
BRITTLE FAULTING IN POROUS, WATER-SATURATED SANDSTONE DEFORMED UNDER HIGH PORE FLUID PRESSURE
The effective stress law is widely used to model the deformation of crustal rock. It states that effective pressure, the difference between confining pressure and pore fluid pressure, dictates rock strength. In low-porosity ...
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 ...
