Short summary
The interaction of the solar wind with a planetary magnetic field causes electrical currents that modify the magnetic field distribution around the planet. We present an approach to estimating the planetary magnetic field contribution by minimizing the misfit between simulation results and in situ spacecraft data. The approach is developed with respect to the upcoming BepiColombo mission to Mercury aimed at determining the planet's magnetic field.
