In order to understand the evolution of planetary satellite surfaces and atmospheres it is important to understand their external environments. In this paper we look at the interactions between plasma in planetary magnetospheres and satellite atmospheres responsible for the production and loss of atmospheric mass. We focus on the processes which take place in the tenuous atmospheres of the Galilean satellites and in the Enceladus water plume. We also review the impact histories of satellites in the outer solar system, and compare the record of impacts in the inner and outer solar system.
