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
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.
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
The tropospheric gas composition of Jupiter's north equatorial belt /NH3, PH3, CH3D, GeH4, H2O/ and the Jovian D/H isotopic ratio
The gas composition of the troposphere of Jupiter in the clearest regions of the North Equatorial Belt (NEB) was derived from the Voyager 1 IRIS data. The infrared spectrum for this homogeneousExpand
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 helium abundance of Uranus from Voyager measurements
Voyager radio occultation and infrared spectroscopy measurements are combined to infer a helium mole fraction in the upper troposphere of Uranus of 0.152 ± 0.033; the corresponding mass fraction is YExpand
Identification of gaseous SO2 and new upper limits for other gases on Io
Gaseous SO2 has been identified on Io. The estimated abundance of 0.2 cm atm is consistent with an atmosphere in equilibrium with solid SO2 at the local surface equilibrium temperature. PreliminaryExpand
The helium abundance of Jupiter from Voyager
The helium abundance in the Jovian atmosphere is derived from Voyager 1 data by two methods. The first method uses only infrared spectra from selected locations on the planet while the second methodExpand
Albedo, internal heat flux, and energy balance of Saturn
Full-disk and high-resolution measurements recorded during the Voyager 1 flyby of Saturn by the radiometer of the infrared instrument, IRIS, indicate a geometric albedo of 0.242 ± 0.012, which isExpand
C4H2, HC3N and C2N2 in Titan's atmosphere
The compounds C4H2, HC3N, and C2N2 have been detected in trace amounts in the stratosphere of Titan. The identification of two compounds containing nitrogen, in addition to HCN, provides furtherExpand
