Version of Record online: 21 APR 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013JE004459

Key Points

  • We present models of the tidal deformation of Mercury based on MESSENGER results
  • Tides are sensitive to size and density of the core and rheology of outer shell
  • The presence of a FeS layer would increase the tidal response
