The immense amount of the mapping-phase Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) magnetic data allows us to derive a highly accurate magnetic map of Mars. The data acquired at nighttimes within the first $3 years of the mapping phase are divided into two almost equal parts, and each part is expressed in spherical harmonics of degree up to 90. The two models are almost identical over harmonics of degree up to 62 but show appreciable differences over higher-degree harmonics, indicating that the higher-degree harmonic coe…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
