Single particle approximation for the inner coma of comet Halley

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Parameters of the plasma in the inner coma of comet Halley are derived from the magnetic field measurements by using single particle approximation. Both the plasma velocity and the temperature obtained by using this approach are self-consistent and happen to be in good agreement with in situ measurements whereas the neutral gas production rate happens to be 2-3 times higher than the conventionally cited value 6.9 × 1029 s-1.
