Different types of photometric observations in the 1930s (Trumpler 1930; Stebbins et al 1 934; 1939) clearly showed that the dark "holes" in the Milky Way, observed by William Herschel almost 150Expand

Role of grain size and particle velocity distribution in secondary electron emission in space plasmas
By virtue of being generally immersed in a plasma environment, cosmic dust is necessarily electrically charged. The fact that secondary emission plays an important role in determining the equilibriumExpand

The electrostatics of a dusty plasma
We derive the potential distribution in a plasma containing dust grains where the Debye length can be larger or smaller than the average intergrain spacing. We treat three models for the grain-plasmaExpand

The comet Halley dust and gas environment
Quantitative descriptions of environments near the nucleus of comet P/Halley have been developed to support spacecraft and mission design for the flyby encounters in March, 1986. To summarize theseExpand

Dusty plasma effects in Saturn's magnetosphere
[1] Comets, planetary rings, exposed dusty surfaces, and the zodiacal dust cloud are all examples of environments where dusty plasma effects establish the size and spatial distributions of smallExpand

Satellites and magnetospheres of the outer planets
The known properties of the satellites of the outer planets are reviewed and an attempt is made to provide explanations for some of the more striking features in terms of interaction with theExpand

Gyrophase drifts and the orbital evolution of dust at Jupiter's gossamer ring
Abstract Jupiter's “gossamer” ring, which apparently consists largely of fine dust grains, and extends outward from the main ring to the vicinity of Thebe at ∼3.11 RJ, has a significant peak at theExpand

The gravito‐electrodynamics of charged dust in planetary magnetospheres
The dynamics of small electrically charged dust grains within the rigidly corotating regions of planetary magnetospheres such as those of Jupiter and Saturn is considered. Depending on whether one isExpand

The physics of comets
This volume of the 'Fundamentals of Cosmic Physics' is concerned with the physics of comets. Aspects regarding the nucleus are discussed, taking into account observations, radius and albedo, mass,Expand

The dynamics and thermodynamics of a dusty cometary atmosphere.
A self-consistent model of a dirty, clathrate cometary nucleus is extended to account for diffuse radiation fields caused by multiple scattering and thermal reradiation of the solar continuum byExpand
