For positive grains only electrons with sufficient energies can escape. Therefore, a model is needed for the reflected current as a function of the escaping electron energy. A semi-Gaussian velocity distribution (with a spread measured by Trej) up to the elastic peak at incident electron energy can be used. The resulting current is [Jurac et al. 1995] Ir = 87r2~2e me X X [1 - 1 00 Efe(E - eV)R(E) x eV ~ + (~ KTrej KTrej [1- ~ KTrej exp 1) exp (ev - E) 1 KTrej (_~)l-l dE. 31) The reflection coefficient approaches zero as E -+ 0, reaches a maximum below rv 20 eV and decreases slowly at higher energies.

In principle, it might be possible that the effective potential has a local minimum, causing trapped orbits. However, particles will not populate such orbits when there are no collisions. Indeed, particles coming from r = 00 with a positive energy will be collected or reflected, but keep their initial energy, and therefore trapped orbits will be empty. On the other hand, collisions will scatter particles, and a possibility of trapped particles exists if the effective potential has a local minimum.

Hence, as will be discussed further on, it is not only at the larger planets that the magnetospheres shape the size and spatial distributions of small dust grains in planetary rings, but also in the Earth's magnetosphere and in circumsolar dust rings. There are other, intriguing speculations of dusty plasmas occurring in unexpected places. One of these is the recent observation of enhanced positive cloud-to-ground lightning in thunderstorms over the United States in smoke-contaminated air, where smoke from forest fires in Mexico were advected north-east [Lyons et al.
