Physical Processes Affecting the Motion of Small Bodies in the Solar System and their Application to the Evolution of Meteor Streams

  • Iwan P. Williams (a1)

Abstract

In addition to planetary perturbations, the small particles which make up a meteor stream are subject to outward radiation pressure and the Poynting-Robertson effect. New particles can also be generated in a stream through being released from the nucleus of a comet. We summarise the main physical effects, discuss models for meteor stream evolution and give a brief account of the observational data available.
