Masses of the central core and values of Δν0 predicted by interior models of Jupiter. Colored symbols represent solutions obtained for different EOSs of hydrogen (as labeled) and using consistent EOSs for helium, ices, and rocks (see Saumon & Guillot 2004, for a full description of the models). Boxes, open squares, and open circles correspond to solutions matching all available constraints. Dots correspond to models that fail to match the observed fourth order gravitational moment J4. The models assume a two-layer hydrogen-helium envelope overlying a core made either of pure rocks (circles) or pure ices (squares). Asterisks correspond to older model solutions in which ices and rocks were modeled using the helium EOS (Gudkova et al. 1995). The grey area indicates the 1-σ constraint obtained from our determination of the large separation of the modes.

Current usage metrics show cumulative count of Article Views (full-text article views including HTML views, PDF and ePub downloads, according to the available data) and Abstracts Views on Vision4Press platform.

Data correspond to usage on the plateform after 2015. The current usage metrics is available 48-96 hours after online publication and is updated daily on week days.

Initial download of the metrics may take a while.
