OH in Saturn's magnetosphere: Observations and implications
The discovery of OH in Saturn's inner magnetosphere changed our view of this region from one where plasma dominated the physics to one where neutrals are dominant. We revisit Hubble Space TelescopeExpand

Saturn: Search for a missing water source
[1] The origin of the large hydroxyl radical (OH) cloud near the inner moons of Saturn, indicative of a surprisingly large water-vapor source, has represented a puzzle since its discovery in 1992. AExpand

A two‐dimensional model of plasma transport and chemistry in the Jovian magnetosphere
A two-dimensional model of plasma transport and chemistry in the Jovian inner magnetosphere that enables us to calculate ion and electron densities and temperatures as well as their radiativeExpand

Detection of ionized sulfur in the Jovian magnetosphere
Detection of a pair of emission lines at 6717 and 6730 A in the near vicinity of Jupiter is reported. It is proposed that the lines be identified with the forbidden doublet of S ii. The astrophysicalExpand

The ionosphere of Ganymede
Abstract We consider the distribution of plasma density in the atmosphere of Ganymede and present electron density profiles inferred from data of the Plasma Wave instrument of Galileo. To study theExpand

Heavy ions in the outer Kronian magnetosphere
Data from the plasma science experiment on Voyager 1 show the existence of a cold heavy ion component in the plasma populating the outer Kronian magnetosphere (L ≈ 15). The mass resolution is notExpand

Excitation of the Ganymede Ultraviolet Aurora
We analyze the ultraviolet aurorae observed on Ganymede by means of the Hubble Space Telescope and compare them to similar phenomena on Earth. We find that the tenuous nature of Ganymede's atmosphereExpand

Satellite tori at Saturn
The inner satellites of Saturn are icy bodies imbedded in a plasma environment in which they are continuously bombarded by energetic ions, corotating plasma, and solar radiation. LaboratoryExpand

Corotation of the kronian magnetosphere
Observations of the radial variation of azimuthal plasma velocity in the inner part of the magnetosphere of Saturn show deviations from corotation occur as far in as L = 4. Major deviations fromExpand

Outflow of ions from Ganymede: A reinterpretation
The cold, dense plasma in the polar magnetosphere of Ganymede has been observed to contain one species of positive ions. The usual assumption that they are protons leads to severe problems, e.g.Expand
