Sketch of low-charge solar wind charge-exchange processes in a cometary environment. Two processes are shown with solar wind protons and alpha particles, respectively, which transfer a single charge to water molecules. The depicted x,y,z Cartesian coordinate system is the one used in the analytical model. The comet picture is that of 67P (courtesy ESA/Rosetta).
