  • Hamburger, Michael Wile, 1953-; Galgana, Gerald; Johnson, Kaj; Pavlis, Gary; Shoemaker, Kim (U.S. Geological Survey - National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program, 2010)
    This project combines high-precision GPS geodetic measurements in the southern Illinois Basin with geodynamic modeling to help constrain processes of present-day strain and seismicity in the tectonically active northern ...
  • Schulte, Felix M.; Wittmann, Axel 1971-; Jung, Stefan; Morgan, Joanna V.; Gulick, Sean P. S.; Kring, David A. (David Allen); Grieve, Richard A. F.; Osinski, Gordon R.; Riller, Ulrich; IODP-ICDP Expedition 364 Science Party (Springer, 2021-03-18)
    Core from Hole M0077 from IODP/ICDP Expedition 364 provides unprecedented evidence for the physical processes in effect during the interaction of impact melt with rock-debris-laden seawater, following a large meteorite ...
  • Prockter, Louise; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3927-1073; Kay, Jonathan P.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-2239-3031 (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2019)
    In this, the fourth meeting in the Ocean Worlds series, we focus on the ice-water interactions occurring within ocean worlds beyond Earth, from a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspective.
  • Prockter, Louise; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3927-1073 (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 2018)
    The focus will be on the potential for silicate-water interactions to occur on Ocean Worlds beyond Earth, from a multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary perspective.
  • De, Bibhas R. (Pergamon Press, 1977)
    We define a simple formalism for calculating the condensation sequence of meteoritic minerals in a cooling vapor phase in temperature disequilibrium (between the vapor phase and the condensed phase) when such minerals ...
  • Weller, Matthew B.; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-1604-7810; Lenardic, Adrian (Elsevier, 2017-03-22)
    Here, we will discuss constraints on the tectonic evolution of the Earth and present a novel framework of planetary evolution that moves toward probabilistic arguments based on general physical principals, as opposed to ...
  • Arkani-Hamed, Jafar (Pergamon Press, 1973)
    A new mascon hypothesis is proposed which accounts for: (1) the existence of lunar mascons for more than 3 b.y., (2) the evidence for extensive volcanic activity from 3.7 to 3.2 b.y. ago, (3) the existence of negative ...
  • Srnka, L. J. (Pergamon Press, 1976)
    Acquisition of thermoremanent magnetization (TRM) in a lunar lithosphere which cooled in the presence of a hypothetical ancient lunar dipole field is studied using Runcorn's theorem and a range of lunar evolution models.
  • Runcorn, S. K. (Pergamon Press, 1974)
    The discovery of positive gravity anomalies over the circular maria by Muller and Sjogren (1968) has been one of the most discussed results of the Apollo lunar exploration program. That the contours of the gravitational ...
  • Unknown author (National Aeronautics and Space Administration, 1999)
    Features a collection of information about the Apollo program such as Moon Facts, and the Top Ten Scientific Discoveries Made During Apollo Exploration of the Moon. Two accompanying classroom activities include Geology of ...
  • Kebukawa, Yoko; Chan, Queenie H. S.; Tachibana, Shogo; Kobayashi , Kensei; Zolensky, M. E. (Michael E.); https://orcid.org/0000-0002-3181-1303 (American Association for the Advancement of Science, 2017-03-01)
    We report that the water-soluble amino acid precursors are synthesized from formaldehyde, glycolaldehyde, and ammonia with the presence of liquid water, simultaneously with macromolecular organic solids similar to the ...
  • Schultz, Peter H., 1944-; Mendell, Wendell (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    The Apollo 17 Scanning Infrared Radiometer experiment showed that the ejecta deposits of large lunar craters (D greater than 3 km) typically exhibit uniform nighttime temperatures comparable to or less than those of the ...
  • Wiens, Roger C.; Edgett, Kenneth S.; Stack, Kathryn M.; Dietrich, William E.; Bryk, Alexander B.; Mangold, Nicolas; Bedford, Candice; https://orcid.org/0000-0002-0783-1064; Gasda, Patrick J.; Fairén, Alberto G.; Thompson, Lucy; Johnson, Jeff; Gasnault, Olivier M.; Clegg, Sam; Cousin, Agnes; Fornij, Olivier; Frydenvang, Jens; Lanza, Nina; Maurice, Sylvestre; Newsom, Horton E.; Ollila, Ann; Payré, Valerie; Rivera-Hernandez, Frances; Vasavada, Ashwin (Elsevier, 2020-06-06)
    Here we present ground-based observations regarding a puzzling type of geological unit first observed prior to landing. Using ~25 cm/pixel High Resolution Imaging Science Experiment (HiRISE; McEwen et al., 2007) images ...
  • Basu, Abhijit; McKay, David S.; Fruland, Ruth M. (Pergamon Press, 1978)
    We have analyzed 6 Luna 24 soils for major and trace elements by We have performed detailed petrographic modal analyses of polished grain mounts of four sieve fractions in the size range of 20 μm to 250 μm for each of the ...
  • Phillips, R. J. (Roger J.), 1940-; Dvorak, John (1981)
    Grimaldi is a relatively small multi-ringed basin located on the western limb of the moon. Spacecraft free-air gravity data reveal a mascon associated with the inner ring of this structure, and the topographic correction ...
  • Unknown author (Lunar and Planetary Institute, 1998)
    The topics that will form the basis for most of the discussion will be as follows: 1. Accretion: comparisons with other stars, loss of volatiles in the inner solar system, accretionary rates, and the thermal development ...
