[AOS11-01] Explorations and current understandings for subsurface ocean of icy bodies
In these icy bodies, e.g., Jovian moon Europa and Saturnian moon Enceladus, existence of the global liquid water ocean under the icy crust, called as "subsurface ocean", has been strongly suggested through the past remote sensing (mainly by geodetic and electromagnetic measurement) and theoretical modelling.
In this talk, I introduce the results of previous observations and theoretical calculations, and summarize the current
understandings focusing on the geophysical knowledge about the subsurface ocean of icy bodies.
