Number of particles by type detected by GIADA during the bound-orbit phase reported with their measured physical parameter ranges.

Particle N° of Speed Mass Momentum Size*
type particles [m s-1] [kg] [kg m s-1] [μm]

Fluffy 1056 <9 ... ... 180 ÷ 800
Compact 202 0.3 ÷ 12.2 1.9 × 10-10÷ 4.2 × 10-7 1 × 10-10÷ 3.9 × 10-7 80 ÷ 800

Notes.

(*)

Particles >800 μm were detected: for these we cannot determine the size because of the GDS subsystem saturation.
