Using the viscoelastic relaxation of large impact craters to study the thermal history of Mars.
(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 ...
Flanking Fractures and the Formation of Double Ridges on Europa
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 ...
Studying the Thermal and Structural Evolution of Planetary Bodies
The focus of this research is to study the thermal and structural evolution of three planetary bodies, Mars, Venus and the asteroid Vesta. The almost uniform spatial distribution of craters on the surfaces of planets makes ...
Investigating the Evolution of Surface Features on Saturn’s Moon Titan
Saturn’s icy moon Titan is thought to be the most Earth-like world in our solar system. There is overwhelming evidence of exogenic processes (aeolian, lacustrine, fluvial, and impact cratering), but it is unclear if exogenic ...
