Constraints on Uranus's haze structure, formation and transport

Abstract:

Microphysical simulations have been performed to constrain the formation and structure of haze in Uranus's atmosphere. These simulations were coupled to a radiative-transfer code to fit observations performed by the SINFONI Integral Field Unit Spectrometer on the Very Large Telescope (VLT) and by the Wide Field Camera 3 (WFC3) of the Hubble Space Telescope (HST) in 2014. Our simulations yield an effective radius of ∼0.2 μm for the haze particles in the tropopause and a density of ∼2.9 particl...
