Large Craters on Jupiter

The Juno Radio Science (gravity) experiment is indicating a large “stable” homogeneous mass distribution within Jupiter out to approximately 0.972 RJ rather than the small, ten to twenty Earth-mass rocky-iron core required in the ‘gas giant’ hypothesis to quickly attract all the hydrogen and helium gases before they escaped the nascent solar system. In addition, medium scale variations in the gravity data are being interpreted as due to mass atmospheric ‘flows’. Coincidentally(?), Juno MAG data suggests four large roughly circular anomalies in the surface magnetic field in the same areas.

The nominal composition of Jupiter, Methane Gas Hydrate, is (CH4)4(H2O)23 , therefore powerful impacts and the heat of the subsequent sustained fusion reactions on the solid surface of Jupiter ‘melted’ considerable Methane Gas Hydrate in the area allowing vast amounts of methane to escape, resulting in the partial filling of the craters with pure water. In the cyclic catastrophism model, both gravity and MAG anomalies mark large basins or flooded palimpsests produced by ancient impact explosions which ejected sufficient mass to produce the terrestrial planets.

The solid MGH body of Jupiter cannot generate a magnetic field, but due to the uniformly distributed abundance of iron in the form of dust particles, ~318 times the mass of the iron in the Earth, it acts as a large, weak permanent magnet induced by the stream of 1030 high velocity helium ions (20,000 km/sec) circling a few thousand km above the equator which generate its external magnetic field. Close to the surface, the magnetic field of Jupiter measured by Juno is influenced by the field induced in the solid interior. At the locations of the large craters, the entire water-filled palimpsests have lost all their iron, therefore the induced magnetic field anomalies measured by the Juno MAG instrument correspond to the gravity anomalies which extend to slightly deeper depths.

Scientists desperately trying to explain these correspondences have generated separate models of how the ‘flows’ in the upper layer effects the measured gravity and how the deeper, internally generated magnetic field drops off with distance from the center of Jupiter of the planet (see: Constraining Jupiter’s internal flows using Juno magnetic and gravity measurements, by E. Galanti et al. Geophysical Research Letters)…”that combines both fields to constrain the depth-dependent flow field inside Jupiter. This method is based on a mean-field electrodynamic balance that relates the flow field to the anomalous magnetic field, and geostrophic balance that relates the flow field to the anomalous gravity field.”  Dozens of variables and functions in these models have been ‘adjusted’ to match a proposed model.
