Lecture 1: Understanding the Ice Shells of Ocean Worlds Europa, Enceladus, and Pluto

Earth occupies a special place in the Solar System. It is the only planet with plate tectonics, clear and ubiquitous evidence for biological activity, and a liquid water widely distributed over its surface. These phenomena are probably related. Therefore finding liquid water has been seen as an important step in our never-ending quest to find evidence for life outside our planet. Outside the Earth, the best opportunity to find abundant liquid water in the solar system today is in the interior of certain icy satellites and the dwarf planet Pluto. These ocean worlds, though, are hidden underneath thick ice shell. Evaluating strategies to understand these oceans therefore requires a full characterization of the ice shell, which can guide future mission strategies. I will describe three recent studies that pose new constraints on the thickness and structure of selected outer solar system ice shells. These studies cover the variety of approaches that can be used today to characterize the structure of ice shells on ocean worlds.

 

Lecture 2: Publishing and Reviewing in the Journal of Geophysical Research – Planets

JGR–Planets is the highest ranked journal specialized in planetary sciences, covering a wide variety of topics and welcomes your best science for publication. Publishing in JGR–Planets can be a daunting proposition, especially when considering language and cultural barriers. Interaction with the journal also includes providing peer reviews, and it is important to strike the right balance between criticism and respect. As Editor-in-Chief of JGR–Planets, I will share advice on preparing successful manuscript submissions and writing effective peer reviews. I will cover the structure of AGU publications, authorship issues, journal content and scope, manuscript elements, the role and importance of reviewers, and more.

Editor-in-Chief, Journal of Geophysical Research – Planets

Laurent G. J. Montesi is a Professor at the Department of Geology, University of Maryland. He has a PhD in Geophysics from Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Laurent’s research focuses on understanding the patterns of deformation that we see at the surface of the planets of the solar system, especially on the formation of mountain belts as well as rifting. He is interested in structures found on Earth, Mars, Venus, and the satellites of Jupiter, Ganymede and Europa.

Laurent is the Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Geophysical Research – Planets (JGR-Planets). The journal publishes original research articles spanning the broad field of planetary science, including but not limited to planetary geology, geophysics, geochemistry, atmospheres, dynamics, and exoplanets. JGR-Planets now publishes over 150 articles per year, the Median time from submission to first decision after review is 41 days, the 2018 Impact Factor is 3.97.
