The Chemistry of Europa and Venus, and Characterization of Earth-like Exoplanets

Jiazheng Li
This thesis contains three parts of work, including oxidant sources on Europa, sulfur chemistry on Venus, and the characterization of Earth-like exoplanets. In the first part, we build two chemical-transport models to study the various oxidant-generation processes that occur in both Europa’s atmosphere and surface ice. The atmospheric model focuses on the role that water plumes play in the formation of Europa’s ionosphere. The simulation results, which show that the ionization reactions are initiated by...
