Overview of Jovian Aurora's observed features and its possible origin
As on Earth, Jupiter's auroral emission comes from the upward Birkeland currents. The VIP4 magnetic field model maps the main oval to the middle magnetosphere (r ∼ 30 RJ). However, the interpretation of the observed ...
Variations of Jovian aurora induced by changes in solar wind dynamic pressure
The jovian aurora contains a persistent main oval encircling each magnetic pole, which is associated with the upward field-aligned currents in the corotation enforcement current system. It has been suggested by two recent ...
