Cassini Encounters Enceladus: Background and the Discovery of a South Polar Hot Spot
TLDR
Cassini's Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) detected 3 to 7 gigawatts of thermal emission from the south polar troughs at temperatures up to 145 kelvin or higher, making Enceladus only the third known solid planetary body—after Earth and Io—that is sufficiently geologically active for its internal heat to be detected by remote sensing.

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
High heat flow from Enceladus' south polar region measured using 10–600 cm−1 Cassini/CIRS data
[1] Analysis of 2008 Cassini Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) 10 to 600 cm−1 thermal emission spectra of Encleadus shows that for reasonable assumptions about the spatial distribution of theExpand
Discovery of Olivine in the Nili Fossae Region of Mars
We have detected a 30,000-square-kilometer area rich in olivine in the Nili Fossae region of Mars. Nili Fossae has been interpreted as a complex of grabens and fractures related to the formation ofExpand
Infrared observations of the saturnian system from voyager 1.
TLDR
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
An intercomparison of ground-based millimeter, MGS TES, and Viking atmospheric temperature measurements: Seasonal and interannual variability of temperatures and dust loading in the global Mars
During the period October 1997 to September 1999 we obtained and analyzed over 100 millimeter-wave observations of Mars atmospheric CO line absorption for atmospheric temperature profiles. TheseExpand
The albedo, effective temperature, and energy balance of Uranus, as determined from Voyager IRIS data
Data from the Voyager infrared spectrometer and radiometer (IRIS) investigation are used to determine the albedo, effective temperature, and energy balance of Uranus. From broadband radiometricExpand
The albedo, effective temperature, and energy balance of Neptune, as determined from Voyager data
Data from the Voyager infrared spectrometer and radiometer (IRIS) investigation are used in determining the albedo, effective temperature, and energy balance of Neptune. From broadband radiometricExpand
Thermal Emission Spectrometer Observations of Martian Planet-Encircling Dust Storm 2001A
Abstract The initiation and evolution of a planet-encircling dust storm on Mars have been observed in unprecedented detail by the Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) on board the Mars GlobalExpand
