This lecture will describe recent research evaluating the magnetic induction characteristics of model Europa oceans (Vance et al. 2020). I will highlight how this work relates to efforts to understand the habitability of Europa and other icy ocean worlds. I will also provide an overview of NASA's planned Europa Clipper mission, set to conduct multiple flybys of Europa toward the end of the decade.
