Jupiter's tropospheric composition and cloud structure from 5-μm spectroscopy

Abstract:

This thesis uses infrared observations from spacecraft and ground-based telescopes to investigate the composition and cloud structure of the jovian atmosphere. It focuses on a single spectral region, known as the 5-μm window, where Jupiter's upper atmosphere becomes optically thin. This allows us to probe down beneath the planet's thick cloud decks to the 4{8 bar region in the middle troposphere. Two different data sources are combined to build up a three-dimensional picture of Jupite...
