Abstract

Electron transport coefficients in the atmosphere of Titan are calculated from the solution of the non-conservative Boltzmann equation. Calculations are performed in various N2-CH4 mixtures and values of the mean energy, drift velocity, diffusion tensor and rate coefficients are reported here. These transport coefficients are then used as an input in fluid equation based models to investigate the propagation of streamers with the aim of investigating the possibility for the occurrence of lightning in Titan’s atmosphere.
