The Evolution of Meteoroid Streams

  • I.P. Williams (a1)

Abstract

The existence of meteoroid streams is indicated by the regular appearance of coherent meteor activity at specified times during the year. Since it is the interaction of the meteoroid with the atmosphere that is detected, the meteoroid has to be greater than about 100 micrometers in radius. Observation of these interactions gives information on individual meteoroids as well as collective phenomena. It is generally agreed that streams form through the ejection of dust particles from the surfaces of comets and asteroids at speeds considerably lower than the orbital speed. The subsequent motion of these particles is affected by gravitational perturbations from the planets and the effects of solar radiation forces. This review is intended to present an overview of the development of the subject and of our current state of knowledge.
