Probing Saturn's tropospheric cloud with Cassini/VIMS

Abstract:

In its decade of operation the Cassini mission has allowed us to look deep into Saturn’s atmosphere and investigate the processes occurring below its enshrouding haze. We use Visual and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (VIMS) 4.6—5.2 µm data from early in the mission to investigate the location and properties of Saturn’s cloud structure between 0.6 and 5 bars. We average nightside spectra from 2006 over latitude circles and model the spectral limb darkening using the NEMESIS radiative transfer a...
