Magnetic field of Neptune

Neptune has been visited by only one spacecraft, Voyager 2, from which the following models are based. The model O8 model can be found in Russell and Dougherty (2010).


This model from Connerny et al. (1991) is a degree 3 spherical harmonic model. Due to the flyby geometry of Voyager 2, the g30, g31, and h31 coefficients are poorly resolved, and the g20, g21, h31, g33, and h33 coefficients are marginally resolved.
