Abstract:The magnetic field of a planet or a planetary moon contains contributions from a variety of sources in the environment of the body (external sources) and its interior (internal sources). This chapter describes different methods that have been developed for the separation of external and internal source contributions, and their application to selected planets and one of Jupiter’s moons, Ganymede.
