Thermal structure of Venusian nighttime mesosphere as observed by VIRTIS-Venus Express

Abstract:

The mapping IR channel of the Visual and Infrared Thermal Imaging Spectrometer (VIRTIS-M) on board the Venus Express spacecraft observes the CO2 band at 4.3 μm at a spectral resolution adequate to retrieve the atmospheric temperature profiles in the 65-96 km altitude range. Observations acquired in the period June 2006 to July 2008 were used to derive average temperature fields as a function of latitude, subsolar longitude (i.e., local time, LT), and pressure. Coverage presented here is limit...
