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.…
A New Look at the Saturn System: The Voyager 2 Images
Within Saturn's rings, the "birth" of a spoke has been observed, and surprising azimuthal and time variability is found in the ringlet structure of the outer B ring, leading to speculations about Saturn's internal structure and about the collisional and thermal history of the rings and satellites.
Encounter with saturn: voyager 1 imaging science results.
As Voyager 1 flew through the Saturn system it returned photographs revealing many new and surprising characteristics of this complicated community of bodies, including small inner satellites that interact gravitationally with one another and with the ring particles in ways not observed elsewhere in the solar system.
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.
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…
The Jupiter System Through the Eyes of Voyager 1
The cameras aboard Voyager 1 have provided a closeup view of the Jupiter system, revealing heretofore unknown characteristics and phenomena associated with the planet's atmosphere and the surfaces of…
Mercury's Surface: Preliminary Description and Interpretation from Mariner 10 Pictures
The surface morphology and optical properties of Mercury resemble those of the moon in remarkable detail and record a very similar sequence of events, suggesting Mercury is probably a differentiated planet with a large iron-rich core.
Cloud motions on Venus - Global structure and organization
Abstract We present results on cloud motions on Venus obtained over a period of 3.5 days from Mariner 10 television images. The implied atmosphere flow is almost zonal everywhere on the visible disk,…
Structure and circulation of the Venus atmosphere
Pioneer Venus has revealed important new features of the structure and the circulation of Venus' atmosphere. The temperature decreases from nearly 750 K at the surface to about 180 K at about 100 km.…
Measurements of the Earth's Radiation Budget from Satellites During a Five-Year Period. Part I: Extended Time and Space Means
Abstract This paper summarizes an extended time series of measurements of the earth's radiation budget from the first and second generation United States meteorological satellites. Values of…
