    New Horizons images of Pluto’s companion Charon show a variety of terrains that display extensional tectonic features, with relief surprising for this relatively small world. These features suggest a global extensional ...

    In this white paper, we summarize the current state of surface age determination in the OSS and make recommendations and advocate for research into the Chronology of the OSS as a high priority for NASA over the next decade.
  • Esposito, Larry; Howett, Carly J. A.; Bloom, Laura; Schenk, Paul M. (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2016)
    Topics include (but are not limited to) geology, geophysics, geochemistry and mineralogy, active jets and their properties and origins, formation and evolution, astrobiology, and future investigations of these bodies. ...

    The focus of this workshop is exchange processes within Europa’s ice shell, including (but not limited to) tectonism, diapirism, subduction, and impact processes, and their relation to the boundary layers above and below. ...

(John Robert), 1957-; McKinnon, William B.; Howard, Alan D.; White, Oliver L.; Umurhan, Orkan M., 1969-; Schenk, Paul M.; Beyer, Ross A.; Singer, Kelsi N.; Stern, Alan, 1957-; Weaver, Harold A., 1953-; Young, Leslie A.; Smith, K. Ennico; Olkin, Cathy B.; New Horizons Geology and Geophysics Imaging Team (ISPRS, 2016)
    Pluto and Charon exhibit strikingly different surface appearances, despite their similar densities and presumed bulk compositions. Systematic mapping has revealed that much of Pluto’s surface can be attributed to ...
  • Marchi, Simone; Ermakov, A. I.; Raymond, Carol A.; Fu, Roger R. (Roger Rennan); O’Brien, D. P.; Bland, M. T.; Ammannito, E.; De Sanctis, M. Cristina; Bowling, T.; Schenk, Paul M.; Scully, J. E. C.; Buczkowski, Debra L.; Williams, David A. (Planetary geologist); Hiesinger, H. (Harald); Russell, C. T. (Christopher T.) (Nature, 2016-07-26)
    Asteroids provide fundamental clues to the formation and evolution of planetesimals. Collisional models based on the depletion of the primordial main belt of asteroids predict 10–15 craters 4400 km should have formed on ...

    Charon displays extensive plains that cover the equatorial area and south to the terminator on the sub-Pluto hemisphere observed by New Horizons. We hypothesize that these plains are a result of Charon's global extension ...
  • Bland, M. T.; Edmundson, K. L.; Roatsch, Th.; Archinal, B. A.; Takir, D.; Patterson, G. W.; Collins, G. C.; Schenk, Paul M.; Pappalardo, Robert T.; Cook, D. A. (American Geophysical Union, 2018-09-24)
    NASA's Cassini spacecraft spent 13 years exploring the Saturn system, including 23 targeted flybys of the small, geologically active moon Enceladus. These flybys provided a wealth of image data from Cassini's Imaging Science ...
  • Sizemore, Hanna G.; Schenk, Paul M. (American Geophysical Union, 2017-06-27)
    Prior to the arrival of the Dawn spacecraft at Ceres, the dwarf planet was anticipated to be ice‐rich. Searches for morphological features related to ice have been ongoing during Dawn's mission at Ceres. Here we report the ...
  • Schenk, Paul M.; Gwynn, David W.; Tutor, James (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2005)
    A study of geology, atmospheres, and other structures using stereo imagery of the planets, their satellites, and the Sun.
  • Coustenis, Athena; Atreya, S. K.; Balint, T.; Brown, H. R.; Dougherty, M.; Schenk, Paul M. (Springer, 2008-07-08)
    TandEM was proposed as an L-class (large) mission in response to ESA’s Cosmic Vision 2015–2025 Call, and accepted for further studies, with the goal of exploring Titan and Enceladus.
  • Karl, Rita (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1999)
    Contains the lessons to be used with the CD, 3-D Tour of the Solar System. The major topics are stereo imagery, space exploration, the Solar System and planetary geology.
