Models of the structure of the atmosphere of Venus from the surface to 100 kilometers altitude
Voyager 2 at Neptune: Imaging Science Results
Voyager 2 images of Neptune reveal a windy planet characterized by bright clouds of methane ice suspended in an exceptionally clear atmosphere above a lower deck of hydrogen sulfide or ammonia ices.…
Methane on Uranus: The case for a compact CH4 cloud layer at low latitudes and a severe CH4 depletion at high-latitudes based on re-analysis of Voyager occultation measurements and STIS spectroscopy

We present for the first time relative albedo maps of Titan's surface. The maps were made from images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope's planetary camera (295 km per pixel) through atmospheric…

A calibrated Fourier transform spectrometer, known as the High-Resolution Interferometer Sounder (HIS), has been flown on the NASA U-2 research aircraft to measure the infrared emission spectrum of the earth to meet high radiometric precision and accuracy requirements.
Voyager 2 in the Uranian System: Imaging Science Results
Voyager 2 images of the southern hemisphere of Uranus indicate that submicrometersize haze particles and particles of a methane condensation cloud produce faint patterns in the atmosphere, and Voyager images confirm the extremely low albedo of the ring particles.
Solar and thermal radiation in the Venus atmosphere
Galileo probe measurements of thermal and solar radiation fluxes in the Jovian atmosphere
The Galileo probe net flux radiometer (NFR) measured radiation fluxes in Jupiter's atmosphere from about 0.44 to 14 bars, using five spectral channels to separate solar and thermal components.…
Dynamics of Neptune's Major Cloud Features
Abstract We used Voyager 2 images of Neptune to investigate the dynamics of the Great Dark Spot (GDS), the Scooter, the Second Dark Spot (DS2), and the South Polar Features (SPF). Relative to…
Voyager 2 observations of Saturn's northern mid-latitude cloud features - Morphology, motions, and evolution
Voyager 2 images provide a basis for detailed study of the morphology and circulation of Saturn's northern mid-latitudes. Both Saturn's large-scale cloud bands and the distribution of its local cloud…
