Missions to the Jupiter System are currently being defined in collaboration between various space agencies. Radiation as well as dust and plasma environments will be major considerations on the available choice of mission profiles – selection of science instrument and design of spacecraft. Empirical as well as physical models of the plasma, dust and radiation environments at Jupiter, Europa and Ganymede have been developed and used in the past, but these models may require to be consolidated, extended, and/or refined to address specific needs of the missions under definition.

This workshop-like session will provide a forum for discussion on our current understanding of these environments at Jupiter, Europa and Ganymede. Also, a special attention will be given to lessons-learned from the Galileo, Cassini, New Horizon, and Juno missions. Papers on recent measurements, theory development, and modeling efforts on the plasma, dust, and radiation environments at Jupiter, Europa and Ganymede are being solicited. Also, papers suggesting new modeling methods, approaches and ideas in preparation for the future missions to the Jupiter System are welcomed.
