Estimation of inductive currents in the ionosphere of the icy moon Ganymede
Student paper other, 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
The Swedish Institute of Space Physics in Uppsala has become the PI institute for the Radio & Plasma Wave Investigation (RPWI) of the ESA L-class mission Jupiter Icy Moons Explorer (JUICE). This involves build- ing instrumentation until the launch in 2022 and an ongoing investigation in the Jupiter system arriving in 2030. One of the goals is to investigate the sub-surface oceans of the icy moons Ganymede and Europa. In this project we are investigating the electrical currents that might flow as well as the conductivities close to the surface of Ganymede to in turn be able to in the future speculate over the sub-surface currents . This project will therefore allow us to have a vaster and more transparent comprehension of the full atmosphere of Ganymede, from the surface up to 500km, and then from there to around 4000km(from previous Galileo fly-bys), and allow future investigation into the oceans of Ganymede.
