Abstract

The physical modeling of most upper atmospheric processes begins with the approximation and solution of one or more of the three primary equations of conservation-mass (i.e., continuity), energy, and momentum. Here we outline the main components of these equations as they relate to the upper atmospheres of the solar system, reviewing the salient results for photochemistry, energetics, and dynamics on key terrestrial planets, jovian planets, and satellites.
