Differentiability and retrievability of CO2 and H2O clouds on Mars from MRO/MCS measurements: A radiative-transfer study

Abstract:

Since the 1970s, it has been predicted that both CO2 and H 2O clouds can form in the Martian atmosphere, and many remote-sounding instruments have directly observed layers of extinction asserted to be clouds composed of either CO2 or H2O ice on Mars. The Mars Climate Sounder, onboard the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO/MCS), entered orbit around Mars in 2006, and has been providing near-continuous coverage of the full planet since, at wavelengths from visible through to the mid-infrared, pri...
