STRUCTURE OF VENUS ATMOSPHERE FROM MODELING OF NIGHT-SIDE INFRARED-SPECTRA

Abstract:

The surface and lower atmosphere of Venus lie below long path-lengths of carbon dioxide and water vapour, and thick cloud layers that were, until recently, thought to be essentially opaque to electromagnetic radiation at wavelengths shorter than a few millimetres. It was unexpected, therefore, when Alien and Crawford 1 announced the detection of measurable quantities of near-infrared radiation leaving the night side. Here we investigate the origin of this radiation by ...
