Juno makes a critical measurement in Jupiter’s aurora

Jovian Auroral Distributions Experiment (JADE) and Waves instrument make complementary measurements of the electron density in Jupiter’s auroral regions.

Electron density is critical for understanding the physical processes that lead to Jupiter’s aurora.

Two independent methods give consistent density numbers. Two instruments extend the knowledge of this critical parameter every orbit.
