Latitudinal variations in Uranus' vertical cloud structure from ukirt UIST observations

Abstract:

Prior to Uranus' northern spring equinox in 2007 December, near-infrared spectra and images of Uranus were obtained in 2006 August and September using the UIST instrument on the United Kingdom Infrared Telescope (UKIRT). Latitudinally resolved spectra were recorded between 1 and 2.5 μm at a resolving power varying between 550 and 2000 with the instrument in long slit mode and with the slit aligned with the planet's central meridian to determine the north-south variations of Uranus' cloud stru...
