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 ...
