Outgassing can be estimated by comparing radiogenic and primordial noble gas ratios in a planets atmosphere. The abundances of the radiogenic 40K, U, and Th are assumed to be roughly constant for all terrestrial planets.
Outgassing is the slow release of a gas that was trapped, freezing, Absorption or adsorbed in some material....
of near surface ices by solar radiation.
outgassing: The release of gases from a planet's interior.
ovoid: Geological features on Uranus's moon Miranda thought to be produced by circulation in the solid icy mantle and crust.
Outgassing - The release of gas from the interior of a planet or satellite
Ozone - A molecule consisting of three oxygen atoms. Ozone molecules are responsible for the absorption of solar ultraviolet radiation in the Earth's atmosphere ...
Outgassing and volcanic activity produced the primordial atmosphere. Condensing water vapor, augmented by ice delivered by comets, produced the oceans.
Outgassing and volcanic activity produced the primordial atmosphere of the Earth. Condensing water vapor, augmented by ice and liquid water delivered by asteroids and the larger proto-planets, comets, and trans-Neptunian objects produced the oceans.
The outgassings of the Earth was stripped away by solar winds early in the history of the planet till a steady state was established, the first atmosphere.
outgassing (NASA Thesaurus / NASA SP-7, 1965) The evolution of gas from a material in a vacuum. outliers (landforms) (NASA Thesaurus) Areas or groups of rocks surrounded by rocks of older age. Used for klippen.
outgassing Venting of volatile gases from the heated interior of a solid body. oxides Chemical compounds containing oxygen. ozone Ultraviolet-absorbing layer of O3 molecules between 20 and 35 kilometers high.
outgassing The evolution of gas from a material in a vacuum. out of phase The condition of two or more cyclic motions which are not at the same part of their cycles at the same instant. Also called out of step. Compare in phase.
2: Cryogenic volcanism and outgassing
The outgassing theory states that Titan's atmosphere arose primarily via outgassing of volatiles accreted onto the surface as clathrates or hydrates.
This was designed to detect radon outgassing events on the surface of the moon. The APS recorded alpha particle signatures of radioactive decay of radon gas and its daughter product, polonium.
Dragonchild: I've got to wonder if perhaps the comets outgassing combined with a little spin might get to the peanut shape. Comets will tend to spin with the axis perpendicular to the orbit. This would be reenforced when they approach the sun.
The atmospheres of the terrestrial planets were created by three processes: outgassing (carbon dioxide and water vapor released by volcanoes), evaporation from ices at the surface, and bombardment by icy comets.
The alpha particle spectrometer instrument will be used to find radon outgassing events on the lunar surface by detecting alpha particles from the radon gas itself and its decay product, polonium.
"The scale of an active comet depends on the level of outgassing rather than the size of the nucleus," adds Jones.
Which of the following things would tend to make a thick atmosphere: cold temperature, high gas particle mass, weak gravity, outgassing from the interior (volcanic eruptions)?
The Soviet spacecraft Phobos 2 detected a faint but steady outgassing from Phobos. Unfortunately, Phobos 2 died before it could determine the nature of the material; water is the best bet. Phobos 2 also returned a few images (right).
One source of this atmosphere is outgassing — the release of gases, for instance radon, which originate deep within the Moon's interior. Another important source of gases is the solar wind, which is briefly captured by the Moon's gravity.
Dust rings formed by outgassing moons or multiple small collisions would be dark and tenuous. The destruction of a large moon might generate prominent bright rings.
Lunar Prospector mapped the surface composition, measured magnetic and gravity fields, studied lunar outgassing events, and prospected for minerals.
An absorbent material (in the form of small pellets) used in low-temperature cryostats to trap gases released gradually after active pumping has ceased. See outgassing. [McL97]
While predominantly H2O, many other compounds such as acetaldehyde, prussic acid, and hydrogen sulfide are also present in these jets. Even though such outgassing has been modeled, it introduces additional uncertainties to orbital period estimation.
Outgassing from our planet's interior through volcanoes, fissures, and geysers produced an atmosphere rich in hydrogen, nitrogen, and carbon compounds and poor in free oxygen. As Earth cooled, ammonia, methane, carbon dioxide, and water formed.
While there are still occasional large impacts, the Moon was considered to be geologically dead until evidence of outgassing (rapid releases of gas that blow off surface deposits and expose less weathered materials) within the past 10 million ...
The release of gas from a planets interior.
In earth's atmosphere, the layer of oxygen ions (O3) lying 15 to 30 km high that protects the surface by absorbing ultraviolet rays.
