JUpiter ICy moons Explorer (JUICE): An ESA mission to orbit Ganymede and to characterise the Jupiter system
Past exploration of Jupiter's diverse satellite system has forever changed our understanding of the unique environments to be found around gas giants, both in our solar system and beyond. TheExpand
Optimal estimation retrievals of the atmospheric structure and composition of HD 189733b from secondary eclipse spectroscopy
Recent spectroscopic observations of transiting hot Jupit ers have permitted the derivation of the thermal structure and molecular abundances of H2O, CO2, CO, and CH4 in these extreme atmospheres.Expand
Methane and its isotopologues on Saturn from Cassini/CIRS observations
Abstract High spectral resolution observations from the Cassini Composite Infrared Spectrometer [Flasar, F.M., and 44 colleagues, 2004. Space Sci. Rev. 115, 169–297] are analysed to derive newExpand
The NEMESIS planetary atmosphere radiative transfer and retrieval tool
With the exception of in situ atmospheric probes, the most useful way to study the atmospheres of other planets is to observe their electromagnetic spectra through remote observations, either fromExpand
Phosphine on Jupiter and Saturn from Cassini/CIRS
Abstract The global distribution of phosphine (PH3) on Jupiter and Saturn is derived using 2.5 cm−1 spectral resolution Cassini/CIRS observations. We extend the preliminary PH3 analyses on the gasExpand
The optical transmission spectrum of the hot Jupiter HAT-P-32b: clouds explain the absence of broad spectral features?
JKB acknowledges the support of the John Fell Oxford University Press (OUP) Research Fund for this research. We are extremely grateful for the support provided by the Gemini staff. This work is basedExpand
Oxygen compounds in Titan's stratosphere as observed by Cassini CIRS
Abstract We have investigated the abundances of Titan's stratospheric oxygen compounds using 0.5 cm−1 resolution spectra from the Composite Infrared Spectrometer on the Cassini orbiter. The COExpand
Temperature and Composition of Saturn's Polar Hot Spots and Hexagon
The thermal structure associated with the marked hexagonal polar jet at 77°N has been observed for the first time and both the warm cyclonic belt at 79°N and the cold anticyclonic zone at 75°N exhibit the hexagonal structure. Expand
A Gemini ground-based transmission spectrum of WASP-29b: a featureless spectrum from 515 to 720 nm
We report Gemini-South GMOS observations of the exoplanet system WASP-29 during primary transit as a test case for differential spectrophotometry. We use the multi-object spectrograph to observe theExpand
Saturn's north polar cyclone and hexagon at depth revealed by Cassini/VIMS
Abstract A high-speed cyclonic vortex centered on the north pole of Saturn has been revealed by the visual-infrared mapping spectrometer (VIMS) onboard the Cassini–Huygens Orbiter, thus showing thatExpand
