Abstract

Features of Jupiter's satellites with their cartographic coordinates and clusterring

Author(s): A.B.Bhattacharya, B.Raha

Some distinct features of Jupiter and its four Galilean satellites are critically considered emphasizing their widely different physical and orbital characteristics. The orbits of irregular satellites and how they cluster into groups have been examined from the consideration of JupiterÂ’s outer moons and their highly inclined orbits as well as the inclinations (°) vs eccentricities of the retrograde satellites.
