[9.04] Extended Gravity Wakes in Pan Wakes

M. C. Lewis (Trinity University), G. R. Stewart (LASP)

We examine the dynamics of large-scale gravity wakes that form in simulations of the wakes at the outer edge of the Encke gap. These features, which might be related to the features called straw seen in Cassini images, appear in simulations that cover a fairly large range of parameters for particle sizes and surface densities. We will look specifically at two systems, one involving “smaller” particles and one involving a particle size distribution, to see how those factors impact the formation and behavior of these features.
