Titan's gas and plasma torus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We assess the implications of the Voyager observations for a steady state model of a torus of hydrogen and nitrogen neutral gas and plasma. We constrain the nitrogen neutral density, the neutral hydrogen and nitrogen escape fluxes (from Titan), and the diffusion rate in terms of observed or inferred quantities. The results obtained are consistent with the Voyager observations.
