Yung-Ching Wang, Janet G. Luhmann, François Leblanc, Xiaohua Fang, Robert E. Johnson, Yingjuan Ma, Wing-Huen Ip and Lei Li Modeling of the O+ pickup ion sputtering efficiency dependence on solar wind conditions for the Martian atmosphere Journal of Geophysical Research: Planets 119

Version of Record online: 22 JAN 2014 | DOI: 10.1002/2013JE004413

Key Points

  • When IMF strength is significantly enhanced, the sputtering effects also increase
  • Sputtering escape rate of O under nominal solar wind condition is 2×1024 s−1
  • Asymmetry of the sputtering effects occurs with respect to the electric fields
