Quantifying the effect of finite field-of-view size on radiative transfer calculations of Titan's limb spectra measured by Cassini-CIRS

Abstract:

The Composite InfraRed Spectrometer (CIRS) on-board the Cassini spacecraft has currently returned around three years worth of data from Saturn's largest moon Titan. One of the unique aspects of CIRS is to take high spatial resolution spectra of the limb of Titan, with sub-scale height (20-40 km) resolutions. This is made possible by the small field-of-view (FOV) of the mid-IR detectors. However, many limb spectra have moderate to large sized FOVs, which introduces bias into retrieved profiles...
