Article

The book “Principles of Geology” of the British geologist and naturalist Sir Charles Lyell [1797-1875] permanently changed the way nature is seen, granting Geology the status of science and establishing many of the main epistemological basis present in this field of knowledge until today. This paper analyses some of the main philosophical fundament...

The use of geological interpretations to better understand features that are observed outside the Earth defines what is known as planetary geology. It is a highly multi‐disciplinary field, using concepts from many areas of human knowledge to better understand the many objects of the Universe. Interpretations tend to be based on analogue models, cre...

Impact cratering is an important process in the formation and evolution of the Solar System. Planetary crusts have been shaped by intense impact bombardment from the first few hundred million to more than a billion years after planet formation. It is a reasonably well understood physical phenomena, resulting in the formation of impact craters with...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
Transneptunian Objects (TNOs), a class of small bodies of the Solar System, can be seen as spinning bodies under the influence of self-gravity, spin-related forces and tidal forces, classically considered to have fluid behaviour and, therefore, assume fluid equilibrium shapes. However, they are composed by geological materials that rarely behave as...

Objetos Transnetunianos (TNOs) são corpos menores do Sistema Solar; podem ser vistos como objetos sob a ação de auto-gravidade, forças relacionadas a rotação e forças de maré, classicamente considerados como de comportamento fluido e, portanto, assumindo formas de equilíbrio fluidas. Contudo, eles são compostos por materiais geológicos, que raramen...

Global fluid behaviour is usually assumed in the study of the equilibrium shapes, and therefore properties, of transneptunian objects (TNOs). However, recent results indicate that this simplification is not always valid. TNOs are composed of a mixture of ice and rock; the properties of these mixtures not only allow the existence of states with resi...

Global fluid behaviour is usually assumed in the study of the equilibrium shapes, and therefore properties, of trans-neptunian objects (TNOs). However, recent results indicate that this simplification is not always valid. TNOs are composed by a mixture of ice and rock, the last generally in the shape of dust and/or grains of various sizes. The prop...

Classicamente assume-se comportamento global fluido no estudo das formas de equilíbrio e propriedades físicas de objetos transnetunianos (TNOs). Contudo, resultados recentes apontam que tal simplificação nem sempre é válida. TNOs são compostos por misturas de gelo e rocha, no geral sob a forma de poeira ou grãos de tamanhos diversos, o que resulta...

De acordo com a União Astronômica Internacional, planetas anões são corpos planetários que possuem massa suficiente para que sua auto-gravidade leve-os a assumir formas de equilíbrio hidrostático esféricas ou quase esféricas, porém não necessariamente apresentando as demais propriedades que caracterizam um planeta (i.e. ter limpado a maior parte de...

A Geologia Planetária, ou Exogeologia, é um campo emergente das Ciências da Terra que usa das ferramentas e conhecimentos sobretudo da Geologia para estudar astros do Sistema Solar. Além de ser recente, mal completando 50 anos de existência, exige alto grau de interdisciplinariedade dos pesquisadores, requerindo o uso de elementos das mais diversas...

Avanços tecnológicos recentes vinculados a exploração espacial permitiram a aquisição de dados anteriormente tidos como inacessíveis. Missões espaciais recentes realizadas pela Agência Espacial Norte-Americana (NASA) e Agência Espacial Européia (ESA), focadas principalmente na Lua, Marte, Júpiter, Saturno e Plutão, forneceram informações que permit...
