    • Flanking Fractures and the Formation of Double Ridges on Europa 

      Patterson, G. Wesley; Lederer, Adam P.; Prockter, Louise M.; Dombard, Andrew J. (Elsevier, 2013-03)
      Europa, a satellite of Jupiter, is one of the most intriguing worlds in the solar system. Its dearth of impact craters and plethora of surface morphologies point to a dynamic evolution of its icy shell in geologically ...
    • Using the viscoelastic relaxation of large impact craters to study the thermal history of Mars. 

      Karimi, S; Dombard, AJ; Buczkowski, DL; Robbins, SJ; Williams, RM (Elsevier Inc., 2016)
      We simulate the long-term deformation of Martian craters and investigate the role of lower crustal flow in the evolution of surface and subsurface topography. Using the finite element method and a viscoelastic rheological ...
