Uranus The magnetosphere of Uranus at solstice (the time of the Voyager 2 flyby). Upper left and right panels show the configuration at different phases of the planet’s 18-hour spin period (see Bagenal, Ann. Rev. Earth Planet. Sci., 20, 289, 1992). The lower panel shows a numerical simulation of the helical magnetotail (Toth et al., JGR, 109, A11210, 2004).[full size image]
Neptune The magnetosphere of Neptune in the configuration corresponding tothe time of the Voyager 2 fly-by (see Bagenal, Ann. Rev. Earth Planet. Sci., 20, 289, 1992). Over the 19-hour spin period the
magnetospheric plasma sheet in the tail changes from roughly planar to cylindrical.[full size image]
Venus The draping of tubes of solar magnetic flux around a conducting ionosphere such as that of Venus. The flux tubes are slowed down and sink into the wake to form a tail (after Saunders and Russell 1986).[full size image]
Mars Interaction of the solar wind with the atmosphere, ionosphere, and magnetized crust of Mars. The several processes whereby the planet may have lost
much of its atmosphere are shown.
