Dynamical evolution of a fictitious population of binary Neptune Trojans
(Wiley Blackwell Publishing, Inc, 2018-03)
We present numerical simulations of the evolution of a synthetic population of Binary Neptune Trojans, under the influence of the solar perturbations and tidal friction (the so-called Kozai cycles and tidal friction ...
The Eccentric Kozai-Lidov Mechanism for Outer Test Particle
(IOP Publishing, 2017-07)
The secular approximation of the hierarchical three body systems has been proven to be very useful in addressing many astrophysical systems, from planets to stars to black holes. In such a system, two objects are on a tight ...
Quiet time ionospheric variability over Arecibo during sudden stratospheric warming events
(American Geophysical Union, 2010-09-11)
We present observations of the F‐region ionosphere over Arecibo, Puerto Rico (18.34°N, 66.75°W), during the January–February 2008 and January–February 2009 sudden stratospheric warming (SSW) events. For the first period ...
Alignment in star-debris disc systems seen by Herschel
(Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, 2013)
Unexpected connections between the stratosphere and ionosphere
(American Geophysical Union, 2010-05)
The coupling of the ionosphere to processes from below remains an elusive and difficult problem, as rapidly changing external drivers from above mask variations related to lower atmospheric sources. Here we use superposition ...
The role of general relativity on icy body reservoirs under the effects of an inner eccentric Jupiter
(EDP Sciences, 2018-07)
Context. Recent studies have analyzed the dynamical evolution of outer small body populations under the effects of an eccentric inner massive perturber, which result from a planetary scattering event. These investigations ...
Simple model of the wave pattern in the atmosphere of a slow rotating planet due to surface irregularities
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2020-05)
Recent observations show a persistent pattern on Venus surface, interpreted as a stationary wave due to the interaction of the prevailing winds with the orography of the planet. In this work we use an idealized model of ...
