The new Titan's hydrogen torus

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

1 Scopus citations


If the solar radiation pressure effect is taken into consideration, the structure of the atomic hydrogen cloud emitted from Titan would be significantly modified. Instead of a circular torus characterized by azimuthal symmetry and with density peak near the orbit of Titan, the atomic hydrogen cloud will take on a pear-shaped structure with the long-lived H atoms distributed through the whole Saturnian system.
