Mars-Solar Wind Interaction: Coupling Between Hybrid, Ionospheric, Thermospheric and Exospheric Models

Abstract : The solar wind interaction with the Martian neutral envi- ronment is investigated by means of three dimensional hybrid magnetospheric simulations. In such formal- ism, ions have a kinetic description while electrons are treated as an inertialess fluid, ensuring the neutrality of the plasma and contributing to currents and pressure terms. This model has been successfully used to de- scribe the near ionized environment of Mars
