Modeling Jupiter's cloud bands and decks 2. Distribution and motion of condensates

Abstract:

A simple jovian cloud scheme has been developed for the Oxford Planetary Unified model System (OPUS). NH₃-ice, NH₄SH-solid, H₂O-liquid clouds have been modeled in Southern hemisphere limited area simulations of Jupiter. We found that either three or four of the condensates existed in the model. For a deep atmospheric water abundance close to solar composition, and NH₃-ice deck above 0.7 bar, and NH₄SH-solid deck above 2.5 bar and a H₂0-liquid deck with a base at about 7.5 bar and frozen cloud...
