[1] Analysis of magnetic field data from the Pioneer 11, Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 spacecraft produced the first models of Saturn’s internal field. One striking feature of these models is the lack of non axisymmetric terms, which poses strong constraints on the dynamo mechanism. Resolution of the internal field using magnetic field data from different epochs is complicated by the uncertainty in our knowledge of the planetary rotation rate. By reanalyzing the flyby data, using modern inversion… CONTINUE READING
