[PPS01-16] Radial distribution of sulfur and oxygen ions in the Io plasma torus observed by Hisaki spacecraft

Keywords:Io plasma torus, sulfur, oxygen

The imaging spectrum of Io plasma torus in extreme ultraviolet (50-150nm) has been observed by EXCEED on Hisaki. We analyzed them using the spectrum diagnosis method and deduced the column averaged plasma parameters (such as S+, S++, S+++, O+, etc.) from the radial distance of 6 to 8 Jovian radii. The local densities of those ions are deduced and the clear increase of S+ (about 3 times) after the Io’s outburst event in 2015 are seen.
