Atmospheric composition and cloud structure in Jovian 5-mu m hotspots from analysis of Galileo NIMS measurements

Abstract:

NIMS is the Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer on board the Galileo spacecraft in jovian orbit. We have selected four maps of warm-to-hot regions of the North Equatorial Belt (NEB) for study, analyzing the spectra emerging in the low-opacity 5-μm window. Two methods for calculating the spectrum have been used. The first is a full-scattering radiative transfer forward model that is slow but accurate. The second method calculates spectra by interpolating on a grid of spectra precalculated using...
