The current work investigates the Venusian solar-wind-induced magnetosphere at a high spatial resolution using all Venus Express (VEX) magnetic observations through an unbiased statistical method. We first evaluate the predictability of the interplanetary magnetic field (IMF) during VEX’s magnetospheric transits, and then map the induced field in a cylindrical coordinate system under different IMF conditions. Our high-resolution mapping enables resolving structures on various scales, ranging… Expand
