The first 20 zonal spherical harmonic shapes on Jupiter

The first 20 zonal spherical harmonic shapes on Jupiter
The first 20 zonal spherical harmonic shapes on Jupiter The goal of gravity science on the Juno mission is to figure out a list of constants to multiply these shapes by in order to best approximate the shape of Jupiter's gravity field. James Tuttle Keane
Spherical harmonic coefficients for Jupiter's gravity field as measured by Juno during its first few Jupiter flybys
Spherical harmonic coefficients for Jupiter's gravity field as measured by Juno during its first few Jupiter flybys Each coefficient should be divided by 10^6. Over the course of the Juno mission, more of these coefficients will be measured, and precision increased. Simulations by James Tuttle Keane; values from Kaspi et al. (2017)
