Exospheric Solar Wind Model
Entry ID: Exospheric
[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: This is an exospheric model of the solar wind with only protons and electrons
(we defer the inclusion of heavy ions to upcoming versions of the code), with a
non-monotonic total potential for the protons and with a Lorentzian (kappa)
velocity distribution function (VDF) for the electrons. This code is developed
for the coronal holes.

Exospheric kinetic models assume that there is a sharp level called the
exobase, separating a collision dominated region (where a fluid approximation
is valid) from a region fully collisionless. In fact, there is a transition
region where collisions between particles become less and less numerous when
the distance to the Sun increases.
