The aftermath of the July 2009 impact on Jupiter: Ammonia, temperatures and particulates from Gemini thermal infrared spectroscopy

Abstract:

We obtained longitudinally resolved thermal infrared spectra (8-13μm and 17-25μm) of Jupiter's impact debris at the Gemini South Telescope on July 24, 2009; five days after the July 19th collision. These were used to study the mechanisms responsible for the redistribution of thermal energy and material (ammonia and stratospheric particulates) following the impact. Upwelling of (8.5±4.1)×10 14g of tropospheric air was sufficient to deposit (6.7±4.1)×10 ...
