The CO2 continuum absorption in the 1.10- and 1.18-μm windows on Venus from Maxwell Montes transits by SPICAV IR onboard Venus express

Abstract:

One of the difficulties in modeling Venus' nightside atmospheric windows is the need to apply CO2 continuum opacity due to collision-induced CO2 bands and/or extreme far wings of strong allowed CO2 bands. Characterizing the CO2 continuum absorption at near-IR wavelengths as well as searching for a possible vertical gradient of minor species near the surface require observations over different surface elevations. The largest change in altitude occurs during a passage above Maxwell Montes at hi...
