Modeling phase functions for dustlike tropospheric aerosols using a shape mixture of randomly oriented polydisperse spheroids
Laboratory and in situ measurements show that scattering properties of natural nonspherical particles can be significantly different from those of volume-or surface-equivalent spheres, thusExpand
Enceladus' Water Vapor Plume
The Cassini spacecraft flew close to Saturn's small moon Enceladus three times in 2005 and observed stellar occultations on two flybys and confirmed the existence, composition, and regionally confined nature of a water vapor plume in the south polar region of Ence Gladus. Expand
Cassini Imaging Science: Instrument Characteristics And Anticipated Scientific Investigations At Saturn
The Cassini Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) is the highest-resolution two-dimensional imaging device on the Cassini Orbiter and has been designed for investigations of the bodies and phenomena foundExpand
The Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph Investigation
The Cassini Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) is part of the remote sensing payload of the Cassini orbiter spacecraft. UVIS has two spectrographic channels that provide images and spectraExpand
Cassini Imaging of Jupiter's Atmosphere, Satellites, and Rings
Findings on Jupiter's zonal winds, convective storms, low-latitude upper troposphere, polar stratosphere, and northern aurora are reported, including previously unseen emissions arising from Io and Europa in eclipse, and a giant volcanic plume over Io's north pole are described. Expand
Clouds, aerosols, and photochemistry in the Jovian atmosphere
Abstract In this paper we review current ideas about the composition, horizontal and vertical distribution, and microphysical properties of clouds and aerosols in Jupiter's upper troposphere andExpand
Jupiter's Cloud Structure from Galileo Imaging Data☆
The vertical structure of aerosols on Jupiter is inferred from data obtained by the NASA Galileo Solid State Imaging system during the first six orbits of the spacecraft. Images at 889 nm (a strongExpand
Cassini imaging of Titan's high‐latitude lakes, clouds, and south‐polar surface changes
[1] Cassini's Imaging Science Subsystem (ISS) has been observing Titan since April 2004, compiling a nearly global surface map and monitoring the surface and atmosphere for activity. Early images ofExpand
Abstract We discuss the accuracy of the correlated-k method for radiation calculations with spectrally averaged data in nonhomogeneous atmospheres. Correlated-k may be justified in special cases but,Expand
The lakes of Titan
These northern-hemisphere lakes constitute the strongest evidence yet that a condensable-liquid hydrological cycle is active in Titan’s surface and atmosphere, in which the lakes are filled through rainfall and/or intersection with the subsurface ‘liquid methane’ table. Expand
