    EnVision: taking the pulse of our twin planet

    , Experimental Astronomy: an international journal on astronomical instrumentation and data analysis

    EnVision is an ambitious but low-risk response to ESA’s call for a medium-size mission opportunity for a launch in 2022. Venus is the planet most similar to Earth in mass, bulk properties and orbital distance, but has evolved to become extremely hostile to life. EnVision’s 5-year mission objectives are to determine the nature of and rate of change caused by geological and atmospheric processes, to distinguish between competing theories about its evolution and to help predict the habitability of extrasolar planets. Three instrument suites will address specific surface, atmosphere and ionosphere science goals. The Surface Science Suite consists of a 2.2 m2 radar antenna with Interferometer, Radiometer and Altimeter operating modes, supported by a complementary IR surface emissivity mapper and an advanced accelerometer for orbit control and gravity mapping. This suite will determine topographic changes caused by volcanic, tectonic and atmospheric processes at rates as low as 1 mm a − 1. The Atmosphere Science Suite consists of a Doppler LIDAR for cloud top altitude, wind speed and mesospheric structure mapping, complemented by IR and UV spectrometers and a spectrophotopolarimeter, all designed to map the dynamic features and compositions of the clouds and middle atmosphere to identify the effects of volcanic and solar processes. The Ionosphere Science Suite uses a double Langmiur probe and vector magnetometer to understand the behaviour and long-term evolution of the ionosphere and induced magnetosphere. The suite also includes an interplanetary particle analyser to determine the delivery rate of water and other components to the atmosphere.

    Improvements to the epsilon-alpha porous compaction model for simulating impacts into high-porosity solar system objects

    , INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF IMPACT ENGINEERING, Vol: 38, Pages: 434-439, ISSN: 0734-743X

    We describe improvements to the epsilon-alpha porous compaction model for simulating solar system impacts. To improve the treatment of highly porous materials, we modified the epsilon-alpha model to account for thermal expansion of the matrix during compaction. We validated the improved model by demonstrating good agreement between numerically computed Hugoniot curves for porous iron (up to initial porosities of similar to 80%) using the improved epsilon-alpha model and experimentally-derived Hugoniot data. Moreover, we verified that the model improvements are easily implemented into a hydrocode and preserve the efficiency advantage of a strain-based compaction function. We used the improved epsilon-alpha porous compaction model in the iSALE hydrocode to reproduce 2-km/s porous-target laboratory impact experiments. The simulation results were in qualitative agreement with the experiments but produced craters that were consistently deeper and larger in volume than the experiments. The results of the hydrocode simulations and laboratory experiments show a reduction in crater efficiency with increasing porosity. This reduction is more dramatic if the impactor density and velocity are higher. (C) 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
