The present conference on cometary plasma processes encompasses cometary analogies of solar-wind interactions with planets, cometary plasma observations and simulations, disconnection events in Comet Halley, the spectrum and energy of solar-wind turbulence related to comets, and observations of the velocity distributions of pickup ions and ion fluxes.

The consequences of these physical processes can nicely be diagnosed and tested by interplanetary tangential .

The consequences of these physical processes can nicely be diagnosed and tested by interplanetary tangential discontinuities serving as tracers of the magnetoplasma flow. The topology of the magnetic field around the cavity and the shape of the ionopause, as well as the formation of the magnetic tail, are discussed. 1982) ‘Solar wind magnetic field penetration into cometary ionospheres’ The Moon and the Planets, D.

Cometary Plasma Science. A White Paper in response to the Voyage 2050 Call by the European Space Agency. Comets hold the key to the understanding of our solar system, its formation and its evolution, and to the fundamental plasma processes at work both in it and beyond it. A comet nucleus emits gas as it is heated by the sunlight. The gas forms the coma, where it is ionised, becomes a plasma and eventually interacts with the solar wind. Besides these neutral and ionised gases, the coma also contains dust grains, released from the comet nucleus.

This volume compiles essential contributions to the most innovative fields of Plasma Processes and Polymers. High-quality contributions cover the fields of plasma deposition, plasma treatment of polymers and other organic compounds, plasma processes under partial vacuum and at atmospheric pressure, biomedical, textile, automotive, and optical applications as well as surface treatment of bulk materials, clusters, particles and powders.

The first observations of cometary wave activity were carried out in 1985/1986 by several space missions (ICE . : 1991, ‘Cometary linear instabilities: From profusion to perspective’, inCometary Plasma Processes, ed. by . Johnstone, Am. Geophys.

Here's a call for observations. As you may know three comets (-Kresak, usakova in early 2017, and 46P/Wirtanen in late 2018) will have close approaches (. 8-0. 15 AU) to Earth in the next two years - a relatively rare occurrence.

The interaction of comets with the solar wind depends on the ionization of the heavy cometary neutrals (mostly H2O and its dissociation products O, OH) which flow out from the nucleus, and the coupling of these newly produced cometary ions with the solar wind through its embedded magnetic field. The 'pick-up' of these heavy ions slows the solar wind such that a shock may form. Here we present a comparative study of the solar wind electrons and protons and the cometary pick-up ions measured by Giotto at the inbound crossing of the bow shock at comet Halley.

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Geophysical Monograph Series, Volume 61.Since Explorer 1 discovered the Earth's radiation belts more than thirty years ago, there have been many opportunities to show the value of in-situ observations over remote-sensing when it comes to an understanding of the space plasma environment. When one of the inner solar system's regular visitors was due to make its once-in-a-lifetime appearance in 1986 the opportunity was too important to be missed. For not only is comet Halley one of the most reliable comets it is also nearly two orders of magnitude larger than any other comet with a known period. Well before there was any visible trace of Halley's comet in the night sky, three of the big four space agencies were banking on that reliability and were preparing five spacecraft to make the journey to intercept the comet. Such activity acted as a spur to the ingenuity of the fourth agency who found a way to redirect one of their long-serving spacecraft and to win the race to be the first to a comet, albeit the smaller, and at the time virtually unknown, Giacobini-Zinner. Although a healthy spirit of competition infused the scientific and engineering teams working on the project at various levels, what mattered in the end was the global cooperation between the agencies and many ground-based observers which for example, enabled Giotto to reach the comet with one-tenth of the targetting error that had originally been predicted.
