The bibliography that follows lists both articles that discuss neutral atom imaging within the broader context of magnetospheric imaging techniques and those that deal specifically with the structure and dynamics of the ring current and with ionospheric plasma outflow. It is a selected bibliography. References to additional relevant studies can be found in the reference lists of the papers included here.
