The Pluto system: Initial results from its exploration by New Horizons
The New Horizons encounter revealed that Pluto displays a surprisingly wide variety of geological landforms, including those resulting from glaciological and surface-atmosphere interactions as well as impact, tectonic, possible cryovolcanic, and mass-wasting processes. Expand
Latitudinal and seasonal models of stratospheric photochemistry on Saturn: Comparison with infrared data from IRTF/TEXES
[1] The variation of hydrocarbon abundances with altitude, latitude, and season in Saturn's stratosphere is investigated using a one-dimensional, time-variable, photochemical model. The resultsExpand
The atmosphere of Pluto as observed by New Horizons
The New Horizons team presents the complex surface features and geology of Pluto and its large moon Charon, including evidence of tectonics, glacial flow, and possible cryovolcanoes, and their analysis of the encounter data downloaded so far. Expand
TEXES Observations of Pure Rotational H2 Emission From AB Aurigae
We present observations of pure rotational molecular hydrogen emission from the Herbig Ae star, AB Aur. Our observations were made using the Texas Echelon Cross Echelle Spectrograph (TEXES) at theExpand
Spectro-imaging observations of Jupiter’s 2 μm auroral emission. II: Thermospheric winds
Abstract Infrared observations obtained in 1999–2000 with the Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS/BEAR) instrument at the Canada–France–Hawaii Telescope (CFHT) are used to infer the jovian windExpand
Texes Observations of M Supergiants: Dynamics and Thermodynamics of Wind Acceleration
We have detected [Fe II] 17.94 μm and 24.52 μm emission from a sample of M supergiants (μ Cep, α Sco, α Ori, CE Tau, AD Per, and α Her) using the Texas Echelon Cross Echelle Spectrograph on NASA'sExpand
W51 IRS 2: A Massive Jet Emerging from a Molecular Cloud into an H II Region
We have mapped [Ne II] (12.8um) and [S IV] (10.5um) emission from W51 IRS 2 with TEXES on Gemini North, and we compare these data to VLA free-free observations and VLT near-infrared images. With 0.5"Expand
Jupiter’s interior and deep atmosphere: The initial pole-to-pole passes with the Juno spacecraft
Juno’s first close pass over Jupiter provides answers and fresh questions about the giant planet, including images of weather in the polar regions and measurements of the magnetic and gravitational fields and microwaves to peer below the visible surface. Expand
Mid-infrared detection of large longitudinal asymmetries in Io's SO2 atmosphere
Abstract We have observed about 16 absorption lines of the ν 2 SO2 vibrational band on Io, in disk-integrated 19-μm spectra taken with the TEXES high spectral resolution mid-infrared spectrograph atExpand
TEXES: A Sensitive High-Resolution Grating Spectrograph for the Mid-Infrared
We discuss the design and performance of TEXES, the Texas Echelon Cross Echelle Spectrograph. TEXES is a mid-infrared (5-25 μm) spectrograph with several operating modes: high resolution,Expand
