The Permanent and Inductive Magnetic Moments of Ganymede

  title={The Permanent and Inductive Magnetic Moments of Ganymede},
  author={Margaret G Kivelson and Krishan K Khurana and M Volwerk}
Data acquired by the Galileo magnetometer on five passes by Ganymede have been used to characterize Ganymede’s internal magnetic moments. Three of the five passes were useful for determination of the internal moments through quadrupole order. Models representing the internal field as the sum of dipole and quadrupole terms or as the sum of a permanent dipole field upon which is superimposed an induced magnetic dipole driven by the time varying component of the externally imposed magnetic field… CONTINUE READING
