Title: Multispecies Sublimation of a Comet Including the Influence of the Gas-Phase on Thermal Conductivity
Authors: Alexander, C. J.
Gombosi, T. I.
Issue Date: 1996
Abstract: The heat tranfer process that results from gaseous diffusion through the nucleus is shown to play a significant role in modeling comet nulei. In this paper, a comprehensive comet nucleus model is presented which simulates the efflux of gas from surface and interior layers.
