Abstract

The locations of features in the Voyager 2 energetic particle data from Neptune are combined with uncertainties in the multipole expansion of the planetary magnetic field to derive new magnetic field models that are consistent both with various interpretations of the particle features and with the magnetic field data. While assumptions as to the origin of the features must be made, they do not provide sufficient constraints to obtain significant new information on any of the unknown multipole coefficients. However, the magnetic L shell positions of the particle features, which are interpreted primarily as absorption signatures of Neptune's satellites, can, in general, be brought into agreement with expected values.
