Dynamics and distribution of Jovian dust ejected from the Galilean satellites
In this paper, the dynamical analysis of the Jovian dust originating from the four Galilean moons is presented. High‐accuracy orbital integrations of dust particles are used to determine their
A new analysis of Galileo dust data near Jupiter
The cosmic dust analyser onboard cassini: ten years of discoveries
The interplanetary space probe Cassini/Huygens reached Saturn in July 2004 after 7 years of cruise phase. The German cosmic dust analyser (CDA) was developed under the leadership of the Max Planck
Circumplanetary Dust Populations
We summarize the current state of observations of circumplanetary dust populations, including both dilute and dense rings and tori around the giant planets, ejecta clouds engulfing airless moons, and
Correlation between speed and size for ejecta from hypervelocity impacts
Ejecta created in hypervelocity impacts of micrometeoroids on atmosphereless bodies are an efficient source for circumplanetary and interplanetary dust. The impact erodes the target surface and


Dust en-route to jupiter and the galilean satellites
A dust cloud of Ganymede maintained by hypervelocity impacts of interplanetary micrometeoroids
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
The ethereal dust envelopes of the Martian moons
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
The Galileo dust detector
The Galileo Dust Detector 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 system, to investigate their
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
Io revealed in the Jovian dust streams
The Jovian dust streams are high-speed bursts of submicron-sized particles traveling in the same direction from a source in the Jovian system. Since their discovery in 1992, they have been observed
Dust Grains around Jupiter—The Observations of the Galileo Dust Detector
Abstract We analyze the data of the Galileo dust detector system (DDS) with respect to micrometer-sized dust grains in the inner jovian system. The analysis of these data requires an in-depth
