The Nature of Turbulence in the Outer Regions of Protoplanetary Disks

24 Oct 2018 Gole Daniel A. Simon Jacob B.

We carry out a series of local, shearing box simulations of the outer regions of protoplanetary disks, where ambipolar diffusion is important due to low ionization levels, to better characterize the nature of turbulence and angular momentum transport in these disks. These simulations are divided into two groups, one with far ultraviolet (FUV) ionization included, and one without FUV... (read more)
