Magnetosphere Seminars

Jupiter is not Earth, Part II

Speaker:Fran Bagenal [LASP]
Date:Tuesday, Oct 16, 2018
Time:4:00 pm
Location:LASP Space Science Building, room N100 (1st floor)

Seminar Abstract:

I hope to complete (ha!) my review of Juno results to date at the magnetosphere of Jupiter.

In particular, I will focus on Jupiter’s intense aurora, what we are learning about processes that are similar to Earth – as well as important differences. One important difference is the role of the moons – particularly Io – in the generation of aurora. I will also give an update on Jupiter’s dynamo after attending the recent Juno science team meeting. Oh, and we could talk about mush balls….
