Michael T. Bland and William B. McKinnon Does folding accommodate Europa's contractional strain? The effect of surface temperature on fold formation in ice lithospheres Geophysical Research Letters 40

Version of Record online: 7 JUN 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/grl.50506

Key Points

  • Fold growth rates are a strong function of surface temperature
  • Folding requires larger strains at Europan equatorial temperatures
  • Passive shortening during contraction helps explain Europa's strain imbalance
