Icarus paper on modelling impact ejecta distributions

How can we statistically model impact cratering events on small bodies in the Solar System? What are the effects of uncertainties on our predictions? To know more, check out the latest paper in Icarus by our Mirko Trisolini, Camilla Colombo and Yuichi Tsuda. The highlights of the paper are:

  • Development of an ejecta cloud distribution-based model
  • Characterisation of asteroid ejecta fate via a representative fragments sampling
  • Sensitivity analysis of ejecta fate to modelling techniques and assumptions
