A global magnetic potential model for Venus' ionosphere
Venus represents the prototype for a class of objects whose interaction with the solar wind is characterized by the dominance of an ionospheric obstacle to the magnetized plasma. Though the interaction region between the ...
Evidence of electron impact ionization in the magnetic pileup boundary of Mars: Observations and modeling results
We analyze the solar wind interaction with Mars through examination of Mars Global Surveyor Magnetometer/Electron Reflectometer (MGS MAG/ER) data. We focus on data in the postshock, dayside plasma flow, especially the ...
