Modeling the size and shape of Saturn's magnetopause with variable dynamic pressure
[1] The location and shape of a planetary magnetopause is principally determined by the dynamic pressure, Dp, of the solar wind, the orientation of the planet's magnetic dipole with respect to theExpand

Saturn's magnetodisc current sheet
TLDR
We present a survey of these thin current sheets in Saturn's magnetosphere and show that they have been observed at all local times where Cassini has explored the outer magnetosphere. Expand

An empirical model of Saturn's bow shock: Cassini observations of shock location and shape
We present a new empirical model of Saturn's bow shock that utilizes observations from the Cassini spacecraft. Shock crossings are identified in magnetic field and plasma observations made by CassiniExpand

Sources of rotational signals in Saturn's magnetosphere
[1] Saturn's internal magnetic field is exceptionally symmetric about its rotation axis. Yet local and remotely sensed observations of field and plasma in Saturn's magnetosphere display periodicitiesExpand

Cassini observations of the variation of Saturn's ring current parameters with system size
TLDR
We have examined residual magnetic field vectors observed in Saturn's magnetosphere during the first 2 years of the Cassini mission and have fit them to a simple axisymmetric model. Expand

Cassini Magnetometer Observations During Saturn Orbit Insertion
Cassini's successful orbit insertion has provided the first examination of Saturn's magnetosphere in 23 years, revealing a dynamic plasma and magnetic environment on short and long time scales. ThereExpand

Titan's Magnetic Field Signature During the First Cassini Encounter
The magnetic field signature obtained by Cassini during its first close encounter with Titan on 26 October 2004 is presented and explained in terms of an advanced model. Titan was inside theExpand

Ionospheric electrons in Titan's tail: Plasma structure during the Cassini T9 encounter
[1] We present results from the CAPS electron spectrometer obtained during the downstream flyby of Titan on 26 December 2005, which occurred during a period of enhanced plasma pressure inside theExpand

A new form of Saturn's magnetopause using a dynamic pressure balance model, based on in situ, multi-instrument Cassini measurements
The shape and location of a planetary magnetopause can be determined by balancing the solar wind dynamic pressure with the magnetic and thermal pressures found inside the boundary. Previous studiesExpand

Magnetic field structure of Saturn's dayside magnetosphere and its mapping to the ionosphere: Results from ring current modeling
TLDR
Ring current modeling in Saturn's magnetosphere using Pioneer-11, Voyager, and Cassini data has shown that the size and strength of the current system grows with the extension of the magnetosphere, governed by the solar wind dynamic pressure. Expand
