Numerical models of zonal flow dynamos: an application to the ice giants

The dipolar component is typically weak, and strongly tilted from the axis ofrotation. Most ofthe cases we present result in low Alfvén and Elsasser numbers, in agreement with previous studies of nondipolar dynamos. Our results s...

Using a Statistical Accretion Model to Predict the Existence of Undetected Moons around Uranusinthe Vicinity of Mab

They compared the observed positions with an orbital model that includes gravitational flattening ofUranus. Although this model works well for nine other Uranian moons, for Mab the ... We used the results ofthe SAM to run time-integ...
