Results from a 3D MHD-EPIC simulation of Mercurys magnetosphere. (a) 3D view of the simulated magnetosphere. Colors in the equatorial plane represent plasma density (in amu/cm3), whereas solid lines indicate field lines. The red box shows the embedded PIC region in the magnetotail. (b) A close-up view of the PIC solution showing contours of electron pressure (in Log10 nPa) and field lines in the noon-midnight meridian (from Chen et al., 2019c).
