Effect of wind-driven accretion on planetary migration

by C. N. Kimmig, C. P. Dullemond, W. Kley 2020, A&A, 633, A4 alt

The authors compare the efficiency of the wind-driven accretion process with respect to the viscous accretion process in protoplanetary disks. They show that for the co-orbital region, this wind-driven process always injects mass from the outer edge of the co-orbital region and removes mass from the inner edge, while the viscous process does not. As a consequence, wind-driven accretion may strongly alter our formation scenarios.
