On Europa, a high radiation flux is believed to play a role in the formation of many of the minor species detected, and numerous laboratory studies have been devoted to explore this hypothesis. In this presentation we will discuss some of our recent research on another alteration pathway, thermally-driven chemical reactions, which are also important for understanding the chemical evolution of Europa's surface and sub-surface ices. We will focus on the infrared spectra of and reactions between H$_2$O, SO$_2$, and H$_2$O$_2$ at 80 - 130 K. en_US dc.language.iso en en_US dc.publisher Ohio State University en_US dc.title INFRARED SPECTRAL STUDIES OF THE THERMALLY-DRIVEN CHEMISTRY PRESENT ON ICY SATELLITES en_US dc.type Article en_US
