These systems are studied for the information they reveal about the properties, history and ongoing evolution of the planetary systems of which they are a part; as dynamical analogues for other astrophysical systems such as protoplanetary disks; and for the wealth of fascinating properties and origin scenarios that make them worthy of study in their own right.
Web of resonances and possible path of evolution of the small Uranian satellites
Satellite systems around giant planets are immersed in a region of complex resonant configurations. Understanding the role of satellite resonances contributes to comprehending the dynamical processes
Analysing the region of the rings and small satellites of Neptune
The ring system and small satellites of Neptune were discovered during Voyager 2 flyby in 1989 (Smith et al. in Science 246:1422, 1989 ). In this work we analyse the diffusion maps which can give an
New precise positions in 2013–2019 and a catalog of ground-based astrometric observations of 11 Neptunian satellites (1847–2019) based on Gaia-DR2
Context. Developing high-precision ephemerides for Neptunian satellites requires not only the continuation of observing campaigns but also the collection and improvement of existing observations. So
The interiors of Uranus and Neptune: current understanding and open questions
This review focuses on the things the authors do not know about the interiors of Uranus and Neptune with a focus on why the planets may be different, rather than the same.


Orbital resonances in the inner neptunian system
We investigate the orbital history of the small neptunian satellites discovered by Voyager 2. Over the age of the Solar System, tidal forces have caused the satellites to migrate radially, bringing
The Orbits of Jupiter’s Irregular Satellites
We report on the improved ephemerides for the irregular Jovian satellites. We used a combination of numerically integrated equations of motion and a weighted least-squares algorithm to fit the
More than 100 small satellites have been identified orbiting the giant planets in distant, inclined, eccentric orbits. Detailed study of these objects requires that their orbits be known well enough
The Planetary and Lunar Ephemerides DE430 and DE431
The research described in this publication was carried out by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, California Institute of Technology, under a contract with the National Aeronautics and Space
OSSOS. VII. 800+ Trans-Neptunian Objects—The Complete Data Release
The Outer Solar System Origins Survey (OSSOS), a wide-field imaging program in 2013–2017 with the Canada–France–Hawaii Telescope, surveyed 155 deg2 of sky to depths of mr = 24.1–25.2. We present 838
Systematic astrometric observations of Proteus
Earth based observations of Proteus are made highly difficult by the magnitude difference with Neptune, and the closeness to the planet. To overcome these difficulties, observation campaigns using a
Hubble Space Telescope Astrometric Observations and Orbital Mean Motion Corrections for the Inner Satellites of Neptune
Six small inner satellites of Neptune were imaged in 1989 with Voyager 2. In 1997, we recovered the four outermost with the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) Wide Field Planetary Camera 2 for astrometric,
