    • Equipotential Figure of Phobos Suggests Its Late Accretion Near 3.3 Mars Radii 

      Hu, XuanyuORCIDiD; Oberst, Jürgen; Willner, KonradORCIDiD (Geophysical Research Letters, 2020-03-30)
      The ellipsoidal figure of Phobos has been tentatively interpreted as resulting from accretion in a tidal environment close to its parent planet Mars. The issue is compounded by the rapid tidal decay of the moon's orbit. ...
    • Temperatures Near the Lunar Poles and Their Correlation With Hydrogen Predicted by LEND 

      Gläser, PhilippORCIDiD; Sanin, Anton; Williams, Jean‐PierreORCIDiD; Mitrofanov, Igor; Oberst, Jürgen (Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets, 2021-08-30)
      The lunar polar regions offer permanently shadowed regions (PSRs) representing the only regions which are cold enough for water ice to accumulate on the surface. The Lunar Exploration Neutron Detector (LEND) aboard the ...
