SM030:
Moon-Plasma Interactions Throughout the Solar System





Session ID#: 22037

Session Description:
This session will focus on new observational and theoretical studies of the interaction between the moons of our solar system and the magnetized plasmas incident upon them. This includes plasma interactions with the solid surfaces, atmospheres, dust environments, and intrinsic and induced magnetic fields of the moons, both inside and outside of their parent planets’ magnetospheres. Of special interest are results related to in-situ field and particle measurements near the terrestrial moon and from Cassini’s flybys of Saturn's icy satellites Enceladus, Rhea and Dione. Studies deepening our understanding of the interconnection between Titan’s ionosphere and its highly dynamic magnetospheric environment are also very welcome. The interaction of Jupiter’s moons with the ambient magnetospheric plasma will be addressed with a view to provide support to the ongoing Juno Mission and the planning of synergistic measurements for the upcoming JUICE Mission. Comparative studies of the various moon-plasma interaction scenarios are particularly welcome.
