A comprehensive comparison between the results of a multiscale three-dimensional adaptive MHD model of the comet Halley magnetosphere and in situ observations by the Giotto mission is presented. It is shown how a steady state model can describe the effects of the varying IMF direction on the cometary magnetosphere. The simulation results reproduce the observed profiles of the magnetic field and plasma velocity very well. There are only two discrepancies. First, the magnitudes of both the… Expand
