Abstract

The interaction between a comet and the impinging solar wind leads to modifications of the magnetic field in the environment of a comet. Among those, one finds magnetic field pile-up and draping, which reveal properties of the interaction and are known from previous cometary spacecraft missions. This work studies the magnetic field configuration at comet 67P Churyumov Gerasimenko at 2.0 AU.
