Fluid and particle simulations of the interaction of the solar wind with magnetic anomalies on the surface of the Moon and Mars
Simulations of the solar wind interacting with the Moon and Mars indicate that the presence of magnetic anomalies on the surface can lead to the formation of mini-magnetospheres around the anomalies. These mini-magnetospheres are not just small scale versions of planetary magnetospheres, but rather their small size leads to ...
Effects of firn ventilation on geochemistry of polar snow
The effects of air motion in firn on geochemical species is examined. Stable isotope data from Taylor Mouth, Antarctica are compared with data from nearby Taylor Dome and are found to be significantly different. Three possible reasons for the difference between these two records are presented: (1) the standard stable isotope ...
