Appendix B. The G7 Encounter Particle Trace Results

This appendix is dedicated to the G7 time-reversed particle trace results. The format of the results follows that of the G2 results in Chapter 6. These figures are referred to in Chapter 8.

Figure B1 ZX projection of the G7 encounter in GSII coordinates. The circles along the trajectory are separated by five minute intervals, the first starting at 06:50:00 UT.
Figure B2 ZY projection of the G7 encounter in GSII coordinates. The circles along the trajectory are separated by five minute intervals, the first starting at 06:50:00 UT.
Figure B3 Radial distance to the center of Ganymede for the G7 encounter as a function of encounter time.
Figure B4 Angle of deviation between the measured magnetic field vector with that of the model field vector.
Figure B5 Model 1 field line tracing for the G7 encounter.  The time in UT is indicated at each feature location.
Figure B6 Model 2 field line tracing for the G7 encounter. The time in UT is indicated at each feature location.
Figure B7 (A) Rate profile for feature G7-07:06:33 for the electrons as measured by the EPD instrument during the G7 encounter. (B) The pitch (a) and phase (f) values of the particles as measured by the EPD detector.
Figure B8 (A) Rate profile for feature G7-07:11:33 for the electrons as measured by the EPD instrument during the G7 encounter. (B) The pitch (a) and phase (f) values of the particles as measured by the EPD detector.
Figure B9 (A) Rate profile for feature G7-07:22:13 for the electrons as measured by the EPD instrument during the G7 encounter. (B) The pitch (a) and phase (f) values of the particles as measured by the EPD detector.
