Temperatures, Winds, and Composition in the Saturnian System
TLDR
Diurnal surface temperature variations on Phoebe suggest a more porous regolith than on the jovian satellites, and Saturn's ring temperatures have radial variations down to the smallest scale resolved (100 kilometers). Expand
Titan's Atmospheric Temperatures, Winds, and Composition
TLDR
Early Cassini infrared observations of Titan show a stratopause at an altitude of 310 kilometers (and 186 kelvin at 15°S), and the concentrations of several stratospheric organic compounds are enhanced at mid- and high northern latitudes, and the strong zonal winds may inhibit mixing between these latitudes and the rest of Titan.

Michelson Interferometry with the Keck I Telescope
We report the —rst use of Michelson interferometry on the Keck I telescope for diUraction- limited imaging in the near-infrared JHKL bands. By using an aperture mask located close to the f/25Expand
Multispectrum analysis of the oxygen A-band.
Abstract Retrievals of atmospheric composition from near-infrared measurements require measurements of airmass to better than the desired precision of the composition. The oxygen bands are obviousExpand
The Evolving Shapes of o Ceti and R Leonis
The sizes and shapes of the stars o Ceti and R Leonis have been measured in the mid-infrared. The observations were made using the UC Berkeley Infrared Spatial Interferometer (ISI), and they revealExpand
The Nonspherical Shape of Betelgeuse in the Mid-Infrared
Three-telescope interferometric observations from the Infrared Spatial Interferometer (ISI) are reported at spatial frequencies that resolve the size and shape of the star Betelgeuse (α Ori) at aExpand
Far infrared transmission of dielectrics at cryogenic and room temperatures: glass, Fluorogold, Eccosorb, Stycast, and various plastics.
The absorption coefficient and index of refraction have been measured in the 2–30-cm−1 frequency range for the following materials at a temperature near 5 K: Pyrex, Fluorogold, Eccosorb CR110,Expand
THE DUST SURROUNDING W HYDRAE
Dust shells surrounding the star W Hydrae have been resolved and measured at a wavelength of 11.15 ?m, using the Infrared Spatial Interferometer. Two different models for the star and dust shells areExpand
THE NON-UNIFORM, DYNAMIC ATMOSPHERE OF BETELGEUSE OBSERVED AT MID-INFRARED WAVELENGTHS
We present an interferometric study of the continuum surface of the red supergiant star Betelgeuse at 11.15 μm wavelength, using data obtained with the Berkeley Infrared Spatial Interferometer eachExpand
The far-infrared absorption spectrum of low temperature hydrogen gas
The far-infrared absorption spectrum of normal hydrogen gas has been measured from 20320 cm' (A=500-31 pm), over the temperature range 21-38 K, and the pressure range 0.6-3 atmospheres. The spectraExpand
