Pressure balance boundaries in the dayside magnetosphere of Mars

Abstract : We use data from the MAVEN and MEX spacecraft to study pressure balance boundaries in the Martian dayside magnetosphere. We use 15 orbit segments from year 2015 when MAVEN and MEX simultaneously were within SZA<60°. The altitude of the derived pressure balance boundaries are estimated and compared to the induced magnetospheric boundary (MB), the ion composition boundary (ICB), the photoelectron boundary (PEB), and the ionopause-like boundary.
