[16.03] Modeling the Morphology of Comet LINEAR (2001 A2)

L.M. Woodney (Lowell Observatory), K.M. Barkume (Reed College), D.G. Schleicher (Lowell Observatory)

Imaging of Comet LINEAR (2001 A2) obtained at the Lowell Observatory June 29 - 30, 2001 revealed CN arcs symmetrical about p.a. 250o. Three successive arcs separated by approximately 12 000 km were observed on each side; outward motion of the arcs was detected. Simlar arcs are seen in C2 and C3, but no jets were observed in the dust continuum. No jet structure was apparent by our next set of observations on July 8. We will present results from Monte Carlo modeling of these gas jets.
