Geochemical Constraints on the Oxidation States of the Europan Ocean and MantleWe present observational, meteoritic, and physical-chemical arguments for an oxidized Fe-metal free mantle and an oxidized sulfate-carbonate rich ocean on Europa. The ocean should be out of equilibrium even with oxidized igneous rocks at the oceanic floor. Additional information is contained in the original extended abstract.
