Impact-generated dust clouds around planetary satellites: spherically symmetric case
Abstract An analytic model of an impact-generated, steady-state, spherically symmetric dust cloud around an atmosphereless planetary satellite (or planet—Mercury, Pluto) is constructed. TheExpand

Evolution of a Keplerian disk of colliding and fragmenting particles: a kinetic model with application to the Edgeworth–Kuiper belt
Abstract We present a kinetic model of a disk of solid particles, orbiting a primary and experiencing inelastic collisions. In distinction to other collisional models that use a 2D (mass–semimajorExpand

The Cassini Cosmic Dust Analyzer
The Cassini-Huygens Cosmic Dust Analyzer (CDA) is intended to provide direct observations of dust grains with masses between 10−19 and 10−9 kg in interplanetary space and in the jovian and saturnianExpand

Dynamics of Dust near the Sun
Abstract In an effort to shed some light on the main features of the innermost part of the zodiacal cloud, the solar F-corona region, for which both observational and theoretical studies still giveExpand

An improved model of the Edgeworth-Kuiper debris disk
In contrast to all other debris disks, where the dust can be seen via an infrared excess over the stellar photosphere, the dust emission of the Edgeworth-Kuiper belt (EKB) eludes remote detectionExpand

Modeling the HD 32297 Debris Disk With Far-Infrared Herschel Data
HD 32297 is a young A-star ({approx}30 Myr) 112 pc away with a bright edge-on debris disk that has been resolved in scattered light. We observed the HD 32297 debris disk in the far-infrared andExpand

Cassini Dust Measurements at Enceladus and Implications for the Origin of the E Ring
During Cassini's close flyby of Enceladus on 14 July 2005, the High Rate Detector of the Cosmic Dust Analyzer registered micron-sized dust particles enveloping this satellite. The dust impact rateExpand

Constraints on the structure of hot exozodiacal dust belts
Recent interferometric surveys of nearby main-sequence stars show a faint but significant near-infrared excess in roughly two dozen systems, i.e. around 10–30 per cent of stars surveyed. This excessExpand

Herschel-PACS observation of the 10 Myr old T Tauri disk TW Hya - Constraining the disk gas mass
Planets are formed in disks around young stars. With an age of similar to 10 Myr, TW Hya is one of the nearest T Tauri stars that is still surrounded by a relatively massive disk. In addition a largeExpand
