I'd just like to preface this with the fact that I'm super new and I apologise if this has been discussed in some way previously (I have looked at similar topics but they haven't quite given me the answers I'm looking for).
So, I'm writing a story that is set in the Jovian system; Jupiter and it's primary moons Io, Callisto, Ganymede & Europa. Of course, the story takes place a long time in the future.
Perhaps it might be worth mentioning that I don't plan on adding fictional systems or moons here. I'm working with the information available on the mass and orbital velocity of the moons and planets I want to include - so my questions relate to the reality of the situation (a little ironic, maybe!).
My problem is working out time. I think tidal locking means that either the day and year or the day and month are equal? I need a little clarification on that one (forgive me for being a bit dim!).
But how would I work out seasons and days/months/years? And perhaps more importantly, how would tidal locking affect the lives of people living on these moons?
