This tutorial summarizes our present, pre-Rosetta understanding of the basic physical processes operating in cometary environments with particular attention to cometary magnetotails. Ionization of cometary gases is responsible for most plasma processes in the magnetospheres of active comets. The interaction between the superalfvenic, magnetized solar wind and cometary ions forms a number of plasma boundaries starting with the weak bow shock and continuing with the contact surface (diamagnetic… Expand
