Abstract

We numerically determine the trajectories of several ions in the vicinity of Titan using for the required electric and magnetic fields the output from a three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamic model of Titan. These trajectories are analyzed to provide insight into the external plasma interaction with that satellite as well as to make predictions for the Cassini Orbiter particle experiments (Young et al., 1998).
