Abstract
The magnetic figure of Mars was essentially constrained by the high quality measurements of Mars Global Surveyor (1996-2006). While the orbital parameters of this mission returned repetitive measurements on the night side (2:00 am) at a nearly constant altitude of 400km, the low altitude measurements were very sparse. The MAVEN mission (since 2014) is on an elliptical orbit around Mars, which provides a wealth of measurements at different local times and altitudes. With now almost three years of available measurements, it is possible to combine MAVEN and MGS observations and to compute a high resolution model of the martian magnetic field. This new model superse...
