Assessing the long-term variability of acetylene and ethane in the stratosphere of Jupiter

Abstract:

Acetylene (C 2 H 2 ) and ethane (C 2 H 6 ) are both produced in the stratosphere of Jupiter via photolysis of methane (CH 4 ). Despite this common source, the latitudinal distribution of the two species is radically different, with acetylene decreasing in abundance towards the pole, and ethane increasing towards the pole. We present six years of NASA IRTF TEXES mid-infrared observations of the zonally-averaged emission of methane, acetylene and ethane. We confirm that the latitudinal distribu...
