AbstractWe study the transfer process from the scattered disk (SD) to the high-perihelion scattered disk (HPSD) (defined as the population with perihelion distances q > 40 AU and semimajor axes a>50 AU) by means of two different models. One model (Model 1) assumes that SD objects (SDOs) were formed closer to the Sun and driven outwards by resonant coupling with the accreting Neptune during the stage of outward migration (Gomes 2003b, Earth, Moon, Planets 92, 29–42.). The other model (Model 2… 

The occurrence of high-order resonances and Kozai mechanism in the scattered disk

Dynamical formation of detached trans-Neptunian objects close to the 2:5 and 1:3 mean motion resonances with Neptune

Aims. It is widely accepted that the past dynamical history of the solar system included a scattering of planetesimals from a primordial disk by the major planets. The primordial scattered population

The Scattered Disk: Origins, Dynamics, and End States

From a review of the methods that have been used so far, we estimate the present mass of the scattered disk to be in the range 0.01 to 0.1 M . We review the dynamics of the scattered disk, paying

DYNAMICAL IMPLANTATION OF OBJECTS IN THE KUIPER BELT

Several models have been suggested in the past to describe the dynamical formation of hot Kuiper Belt objects (hereafter Hot Classicals or HCs for short). Here, we discuss a dynamical mechanism that

The Rarity of Very Red Trans-Neptunian Objects in the Scattered Disk

We investigate the origins of the photometrically very red (VR) and less red (LR) trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs). We first reanalyze the data set of Marsset et al. and find that in addition to the

Details of Resonant Structures within a Nice Model Kuiper Belt: Predictions for High-perihelion TNO Detections

We analyze a detailed Nice model simulation of Kuiper Belt emplacement from Brasser & Morbidelli, where Neptune undergoes a high-eccentricity phase and migrates outward. In this work, which follows

OSSOS. V. Diffusion in the Orbit of a High-perihelion Distant Solar System Object

We report the discovery of the minor planet 2013 SY99 on an exceptionally distant, highly eccentric orbit. With a perihelion of 50.0 au, 2013 SY99’s orbit has a semimajor axis of 730 ± 40 au, the

CONSEQUENCES OF A DISTANT MASSIVE PLANET ON THE LARGE SEMIMAJOR AXIS TRANS-NEPTUNIAN OBJECTS

We explore the distant giant planet hypothesis by integrating the large-semimajor-axis, large-pericenter trans-Neptunian objects (TNOs) in the presence of the giant planets and an external perturber

EVIDENCE FOR SLOW MIGRATION OF NEPTUNE FROM THE INCLINATION DISTRIBUTION OF KUIPER BELT OBJECTS

Much of the dynamical structure of the Kuiper Belt can be explained if Neptune migrated over several AU, and/or if Neptune was scattered to an eccentric orbit during planetary instability. An

Abstract We study the effects of a Mars-like planetoid with a semimajor axis at about ∼60 AU orbiting embedded in the primordial Edgeworth–Kuiper belt (EKB). The origin of such an object can be
