Photopolarimeter-Radiometer (PPR) maps of daytime temperatures on Ganymede at a resolution of 220 kilometers show the expected anticorrelation with albedo, but morning temperatures were about 10 kelvin warmer than expected. Europa had a subsolar temperature of 128 kelvin and a lower effective thermal inertia than either Ganymede or Callisto, and Io's night side was cooler than predicted by recent models, perhaps requiring revision of heat-flow estimates. The lowest 250-millibar temperatures in… Expand
Temperatures on europa from galileo photopolarimeter-radiometer: nighttime thermal anomalies
TLDR
Nighttime temperatures on Europa form an unexpected pattern, with high temperatures on the bright ejecta blanket of the crater Pwyll and an equatorial minimum in temperatures after sunset, uncorrelated with surface albedo or geology. Expand
Galileo Infrared Observations of Jupiter
Galileo infrared observations of Jupiter have been performed with two instruments, the Near Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) and the Photo-Polarimeter Radiometer (PPR). A first data set wasExpand
Thermal Structure and Composition of Jupiter's Great Red Spot from High-Resolution Thermal Imaging
Abstract Thermal-IR imaging from space-borne and ground-based observatories was used to investigate the temperature, composition and aerosol structure of Jupiter’s Great Red Spot (GRS) and itsExpand
Dynamics of Jupiter's Atmosphere
Results from the Galileo probe and orbiter arc compared with Voyager and ground-based results. The probe made measurements to the 20-bar level, well below the nominal cloud base at 5 bars and wellExpand
Submillimeter Wave Instrument radiometry of the Jovian icy moons
Context. We address the issue of remote sensing of the surfaces of Galilean icy moons. We investigate the prospects for retrieval of the physical parameters of the surface of the Jovian icy moonsExpand
Ice chemistry on the Galilean satellites
Jupiter's icy satellites Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto are subject to energy fluxes from electrons, photons, and magnetospheric plasma ion bombardment. As water ice and CO2 ice are thought to beExpand
The organization of Jupiter's upper tropospheric temperature structure and its evolution, 1996-1997
High signal-to-noise images of Jupiter were made at wavelengths between 13.2 and 22.8 µm in five separate observing runs between 1996 June and 1997 November at the NASA Infrared Telescope Facility.Expand
Amorphous and crystalline ice on the Galilean satellites: A balance between thermal and radiolytic processes
[1] The water ice on the three outermost Galilean satellites of Jupiter has a lattice structure that can vary from crystalline to amorphous. Amorphous ice is crystallized by heating, whileExpand
Evidence for a sublimated water atmosphere on Ganymede from Hubble Space Telescope observations
Ganymede’s atmosphere is produced by charged particle sputtering and sublimation of its icy surface. Previous far-ultraviolet observations of the OI 1356-Å and OI 1304-Å oxygen emissions were used toExpand

Spatial Organization and Time Dependence of Jupiter's Tropospheric Temperatures, 1980-1993
TLDR
Evidence was found for a quasi-periodic oscillation of temperatures in the Equatorial Zone, a correlation between tropospheric and stratospheric waves in the North Equatorial Belt, and slowly moving thermal features in theNorth and South Equatorial Belts. Expand

Io's heat flow from infrared radiometry: 1983–1993
We report the following results from a decade of infrared radiometry of Io: (1) The average global heat flow is more than ∼2.5 W m−2, (2) large warm (≤200 K) volcanic regions dominate the global heatExpand
