Adam P. Showman, Lijie Han and William B. Hubbard The effect of an asymmetric core on convection in Enceladus' ice shell: Implications for south polar tectonics and heat flux Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 15 NOV 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/2013GL057149

Key Points

  • Previous models have failed to explain Enceladus' hemispheric dichotomy
  • We show that such a dichotomy emerges naturally from irregular core topography
  • Episodic activity explains high current heat flux yet low time-mean power
