• Modeling Io'S Sublimation-Driven Atmosphere: Gas Dynamics And Radiation Emission 

      Walker, A. C.; Gratiy, S. L.; Levin, D. A.; Goldstein, D. B.; Varghese, P. L.; Trafton, L. M.; Moore, C. H.; Stewart, B. (2009-12)
      Io's sublimation-driven atmosphere is modeled using the direct simulation Monte Carlo method. These rarefied gas dynamics simulations improve upon earlier models by using a three-dimensional domain encompassing the entire ...
