AGU 2016 SESSION P015: JUNO’S EXPLORATION OF JUPITER AND THE EARTH- BASED COLLABORATIVE CAMPAIGN

Session ID#: 13297
Session Description:
NASA’s Juno mission to Jupiter launched in 2011 and arrived at JupiterĀ on July 4, 2016. Juno’s scientific objectives include the study of Jupiter’s interior, atmosphere and magnetosphere with the goal of understanding Jupiter’s origin, formation and evolution. An extensive campaign of Earth based observations of Jupiter and the solar wind were orchestrated to complement Juno measurements during Juno’s approach to Jupiter and during its orbital mission around Jupiter.
This session provides results from the Juno measurements and the collaborative campaign during the early phases of Juno’s prime mission. Scientific results include Jupiter’s interior structure, magnetic field, deep atmospheric dynamics and composition, and the first in-situ exploration of Jupiter’s polar magnetosphere and aurorae.

Submit an abstract to this session.
Final abstract submission deadline is 3 August, 11:59 PM EDT.
