  • Abstract Expressions for laboratory sputtering data are examined in order to describe the effective yield from a planetary regolith composed of, roughly, spherical grains. It is shown that for a fully exposed regolith the effective yield is of the order of 0.4−1 times the measured yield at normal incidence on a laboratory surface depending on the nature of the sputtering process.
