Analysis of Jupiter North Equatorial Belt hot spots in the 4-5 mu m range from Galileo near-infrared mapping spectrometer observations: Measurements of cloud opacity, water, and ammonia

Abstract:

This paper presents the analysis of hot spot observations in the Jovian North Equatorial Belt obtained with the near-infrared mapping spectrometer (NIMS) instrument on the Galileo spacecraft. The data were acquired during the closest approach sequences between June 1996 and April 1997. We focus on the spectral window between 4.5 and 5.2 [Jim determining the cloud opacity above 2 bar, the water vapor relative humidity, and the ammonia abundance between 4 and 8 bar. We find a linear relationshi...
