[Archive] ion and electron distribution in LEO

Message by Pablo Promenzio:
Hi, i have read in some publications that you recommended for a spacecraft with negative basis in LEO, to use Hybrid mode population in plasma parameters.
It seems that I have to use in electron and ion population, HybridMZVoldistrib?
In a height of 619 km what dsitribution you recommend me, for both populations?
best regards,

no that may signify to use Boltzmann distribution for electrons and PIC for ions. The term hybrid can be indeed understodd differently.
