Hydrodynamic escape is an important process in the formation and evolution of planetary atmospheres. Transonic steady state solutions of the time-independent hydrodynamic equations are difficult to find because of the existence of a singularity point. A numerical model is developed to study the hydrodynamic escape of neutral gas from planetary atmospheres by solving the time-dependent hydrodynamic equations. The model is validated against an analytical solution of the escape from an isothermal… Expand
