Table Description: plasma in planetary atmosphere.

This table is available for ADQL queries and through the TAP endpoint.

Resource Description: Planetary aurorae are powerful emissions radiated from auroral regions of magnetized planets by accelerated charged particles, in a wide range of wavelengths (from radio to X-rays). The UV range in particular is adequate to measure collisionaly excited transitions of H and H2, the dominant species in the upper atmosphere of giant planets, produced by precipitating auroral particles, and benefits a good angular resolution. Auroral UV observations therefore provide a rich source of informations on planetary atmospheres and magnetospheres. They also offer a unique diagnostic to remotely probe the solar wind activity throughout the heliosphere. from Laurent Lamy
