The temporal evolution of the July 2009 Jupiter impact cloud

Abstract:

Clouds formed on Jupiter by the impact of July 19, 2009 were observed from the IRTF with the same instrument and near-infrared filters during four observing runs over 50 days, beginning one day after impact, providing comprehensive diagnostics of cloudtop altitude, particle size and opacity and yielding quantitative information on the temporal evolution of the impact cloud (IC). The IC evolved relatively rapidly during the first 26 days after impact (Period I) and relatively slowly for the ne...
