Saturn Helium Abundance: A Reanalysis of Voyager Measurements
Thermal emission spectra calculated using Voyager Jupiter radio occultation (RSS) temperature profiles rescaled to the Galileo probe value of the helium abundance do not agree with the spectraExpand
Thermal Emission Spectrometer results: Mars atmospheric thermal structure and aerosol distribution
Infrared spectra returned by the Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) are well suited for retrieval of the thermal structure and the distribution of aerosols in the Martian atmosphere. Combined nadir-Expand
Mars Global Surveyor Thermal Emission Spectrometer experiment: Investigation description and surface science results
The Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) investigation on Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) is aimed at determining (1) the composition of surface minerals, rocks, and ices; (2) the temperature and dynamicsExpand
Thermal structure of the Martian atmosphere during the dissipation of the dust storm of 1971
The secular variation of the thermal structure of the Martian atmosphere during the dissipation phase of the 1971 dust storm is examined, using temperatures obtained by the infrared spectroscopyExpand
The helium abundance of Saturn from Voyager measurements
Voyager radio-occultation and IR spectroscopy measurements are combined to infer an He mole fraction in the upper troposphere of Uranus of 0.152 + or - 0.033; the corresponding mass fraction is Y =Expand
Temperature and circulation in the stratosphere of the outer planets
Abstract A zonally symmetric, linear radiative-dynamical model is compared with observations of the upper tropospheres and stratospheres of the outer planets. Seasonal variation is included in theExpand
Thermal Structure and Para Hydrogen Fraction on the Outer Planets from Voyager IRIS Measurements
Abstract Voyager infrared spectra from Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are used to infer latitude-height cross sections of temperature and para hydrogen fraction. A new inversion algorithm isExpand
Albedo, internal heat, and energy balance of Jupiter: Preliminary results of the Voyager Infrared Investigation
Full disk measurements recorded 31 days before the Voyager 1 encounter with Jupiter by the radiometer (0.4–1.7 µm) of the infrared instrument Iris indicate a geometric albedo of 0.274±0.013. TheExpand
Infrared observations of the saturnian system from voyager 1.
During the passage of Voyager 1 through the Saturn system, the infrared instrument acquired spectral and radiometric data on Saturn, the rings, and Titan and other satellites, implying a depletion of helium in the atmosphere of Saturn relative to that of Jupiter. Expand
Titan's middle-atmospheric temperatures and dynamics observed by the Cassini Composite Infrared Spectrometer
The Composite Infrared Radiometer–Spectrometer (CIRS) instrument, on the NASA Cassini Saturn orbiter, has been acquiring thermal emission spectra from the atmosphere of Titan since orbit insertion inExpand
