abstract
Analyzing ground-based observation data of volcanoes on Jupiter’s moon Io is the primary objective of this research project. With this information a new understanding of volcanism on Io and tidal heating will be obtained. To study the location of each volcano on Io, “mutual event” observations are necessary, where one of Jupiter’s moons moves in front of Io. In this research project, previous ground-based data is compared to new and improved ephemeris data from the 1995-2003 Galileo spacecraft mission. This ephemeris data, which is the space latitude and longitude of a planetary object, was collected from NASA’s Horizon’s web interface. By using the improved ephemeris data and ground-based observations of Io’s volcanoes, we hope to understand the evolution, volcanic processes, and time history of volcanoes on Io.
