This thesis explores the impact of rotational and plasma dynamics on the geometry and variability of the location of Saturn's magnetopause, using data obtained by the Cassini spacecraft. A significant departure was identified between the observed location of the high-latitude magnetopause and that predicted by the axisymmetric Kanani et al. model. This model was derived from equatorial measurements made earlier in the mission. The departure demonstrated for the first time that Saturn's… Expand
