Eruption Mechanisms for Loki, Io: Inferences Based on Galileo and Groundbased DataA wealth of data about Loki, the most powerful volcano on Io, has been collected and here, we try to begin synthesis of these data. These data suggest periodic lava lake overturn. Further, these eruptions may be truly periodic, and therefore predictable. Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
