Abstract

Plasma boundaries are known to be the loci where significant transfer of momentum and energy exchange between plasma populations can o ccur. In this work, we analyze the magnetic morphology of the outer limit of Titan’s induced magnetosphere. In particular, we apply minimum variance analysis to Cassini MAG data in order to study the role of the magnetic field in the dy namics of charged pa rticles from local and external origin. We examine the properties of Titan induced magnetospheric boundary for different upstream conditions and discuss the role of fossil fields in its formation. These results intend to shed light on the role of the magne tic field in the processes of transfer of energy and momentum between Titan ́s ionosphere and exosphere, and the external (Kronian , Solar Wind) plasma.
