The harvesting or absorption could happen at any point. I see a planet prograde rotating and moving, sweeping material on the leading side on the orbit direction constantly toward the sun* (could happen via the magnetic field), that constant scooping would maximize material on the sunny side*** where with zero velocity, or even temporary reversal --whatever would be sucked pushed more efficiently into the quieter, noon zero velocity area of the near equator. (like a spike on the temporarily stationary tyre on the road.) *** creating an enhanced Yarkovsky effect, and greater energy gradients between east + west+ poles and the super energized equator zone. ). Earth weather is solar driven, If harvesting in the outer planet is more efficient, its contribution to Jupiter weather might be greater. or?
