Abstract

SWCX simulations and X-ray data prove that SWCX spectroscopy can provide insight to SW-planetary neutral interaction and SWCX imaging is promising for magnetospheric studies. MPO/MIXS-C should be able to detect SWCX emission from the Hermean exosphere in the right geometry configuration and SW conditions
