    ..A lifetime on the order of 4 years is suggested, based on photoionization and magnetospheric sweeping. Either the atmosphere is transient and was formed recently or some process is currently supplying carbon dioxide to the atmosphere...

    R W Carlson
    Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91109, USA
    Science 283:2062-4. 1999
    ..The inferred abundance is consistent with radiolytic production of hydrogen peroxide by intense energetic particle bombardment and demonstrates that Europa's surface chemistry is dominated by radiolysis...

    R W Carlson
    Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, CA 91109, USA
    Science 286:97-9. 1999
    ..Enhanced sulfuric acid concentrations are found in Europa's geologically young terrains, suggesting that low-temperature, liquid sulfuric acid may influence geological processes...
