Modulation of neutral interstellar He, Ne, O in the heliosphere. Survival probabilities and abundances at IBEX.

Abstract (from CDS):

Direct sampling of neutral interstellar (NIS) atoms by the Interstellar Boundary Explorer (IBEX) can potentially provide a complementary method for studying element abundances in the Local Interstellar Cloud (LIC) and processes in the heliosphere interface. We set the stage for abundance-aimed in-depth analysis of measurements of NIS He, Ne, and O by IBEX and determine systematic differences between abundances derived from various calculation methods and their uncertainties.Using a model of ionization rates of the NIS species in the heliosphere, based on independent measurements of the solar wind and solar EUV radiation, we developed a time-dependent method of calculating the survival probabilities of NIS atoms from the termination shock (TS) of the solar wind to IBEX. With them, we calculated densities of these species along the Earth's orbit and simulated the fluxes of NIS species as observed by IBEX. We studied pairwise ratios of survival probabilities, densities, and fluxes of NIS species at IBEX to calculate correction factors for inferring the abundances at TS.The analytic method of calculating the survival probabilities gives acceptable results only for He and Ne during low solar activity. For the remaining portions of the solar cycle, and at all times for O, a fully time-dependent model should be used. Electron-impact ionization is surprisingly important for NIS O. Interpreting the IBEX observations using the time-dependent model yields the LIC Ne/O abundance of 0.16±40%. The uncertainty is mostly due to uncertainties in the ionization rates and in the NIS gas flow vector.The Ne/He, O/He, and Ne/O ratios for survival probabilities, local densities, and fluxes scaled to TS systematically differ and thus an analysis based only on survival probabilities or densities is not recommended, except the Ne/O abundance for observations at low solar activity.

sedIcon
within arcsec The VizieR photometry tool allows for easy visualization of photometry points extracted around the Simbad position from photometry-enabled catalogues in VizieR.
The search radius has to be specified by the user. It is currently limited to a maximum of 30 arcsec. It depends mostly on the precision or quality of the coordinates (SIMBAD and VizieR catalogs), the resolution of the images from which the sources were extracted, source extent, and source crowding.
Suggestions are: crowded field: 0.5 to 1.5 arcsec, 3 arcsec otherwise; uncertain coordinates (SIMBAD quality E or coordinates without reference): 5 to 30 arsec (risky!).
