Jupiter’s tenuous dust ring system is embedded in the planet’s inner magnetosphere, and – among other structures – contains a very tenuous protrusion called the Thebe extension. In an attempt to explain the existence of this swath of particles beyond Thebe’s orbit, Hamilton and Krüger (2008) proposed that the dust particle motion is driven by a shadow resonance caused by variable dust charging on the day and night side of Jupiter. However, the model by Divine and Garrett (1983) together with…

A tenuous dust ring of Jupiter formed by escaping ejecta from the Galilean satellites
[1] This paper focuses on the dust environment between the orbits of the Galilean moons of Jupiter. Recent discovery of dust clouds around the Galilean satellites formed by impact ejecta from

Detection of an impact-generated dust cloud around Ganymede
Dust pervades the Solar System, and is concentrated in the ring systems surrounding the giant planets and along the plane of the planetary orbits (the Zodiacal cloud). Individual dust grains are
Jupiter's ring system - New results on structure and particle properties
Abstract A reexamination of the Voyager images has yielded a refined understanding of Jupiter's diffuse ring system. The system is composed of a relatively bright narrow ring and inner toroidal halo,
Dusty plasmas in the solar system
The processes that lead to charging of dust grains in a plasma are briefly reviewed. Whereas for single grains the results have been long known, the reduction of the average charge on a grain by
The formation of Jupiter's faint rings
TLDR
Observations by the Galileo spacecraft and the Keck telescope showed that Jupiter's outermost (gossamer) ring is actually two rings circumscribed by the orbits of the small satellites Amalthea and Thebe, suggesting that faint rings may accompany all small inner satellites of the other jovian planets.
Galileo observes electromagnetically coupled dust in the Jovian magnetosphere
Measurements of dust coupled to the Jovian magnetosphere have been obtained with the dust detector on board the Galileo spacecraft. We report on data obtained during the first four orbits about
A Revised Model of Jupiter's Inner Electron Belts: Updating the Divine Radiation Model
In 1983, Divine presented a comprehensive model of the Jovian charged particle environment that has long served as a reference for missions to Jupiter. However, in situ observations by Galileo and
Clump Detections and Limits on Moons in Jupiter's Ring System
TLDR
Two families of clumps in the main ring are revealed: one close pair and one cluster of three to five, very different from those of the few other clumpy rings known; the origin and nonrandom distribution remain unexplained, but resonant confinement by Metis may play a role.
Charged dust dynamics: Orbital resonance due to planetary shadows
First, we discuss the dynamics of a weakly charged dust grain orb.iting in the equatorial plane of a planet surrounded by a rigidly corotating magnetosphere, where the magnetic field can be
