The infrared spectroscopy and radiometry investigation has obtained spectra of Jupiter and its satellites between approximately 180 and 2500 cm–1 with a spectral resolution of 4.3 cm–1. The Jupiter spectra show clear evidence of H2, CH4 C2H2, C2H6, CH3D, NH3, PH3, H2O, and GeH4. A helium concentration of 0.11 � 0.03 by volume is obtained. Meridional temperature cross sections show considerable structure. At high latitudes, the stratosphere is warmer in the north than in the south. The upper… 
Infrared Observations of the Neptunian System
TLDR
Comparison of winds derived from images with the vertical wind shear calculated from the temperature field indicates a general decay of wind speed with height, a phenomenon also observed on the other three giant planets.
Jovian upper atmospheric temperature measurement by the Voyager 1 UV spectrometer
The first measurement of the neutral temperature in the exosphere of Jupiter is reported. The observations were carried out by the Voyager 1 Ultraviolet Spectrometer during the solar occultation
Thermal profiles in the auroral regions of Jupiter
The temperature structure within the northern auroral region of Jupiter is studied by reanalyzing the Voyager 1/infrared interferometer and radiometer spectrometer (IRIS) spectra. The total measured
Infrared Observations of the Saturnian System from Voyager 2
TLDR
During the passage of Voyager 2 through the Saturn system, infrared spectral and radiometric data were obtained for Saturn, Titan, Enceladus, Tethys, Iapetus, and the rings, suggesting an approximate symmetry in the small-scale structure.
The Atmosphere of Jupiter: An Analysis of Voyager Radio Occultation Measurements.
Coherently related S (2.3 GHz) and X band (8.4 GHz) signals transmitted from Voyager 1 and 2 have been used to probe the Jovian atmosphere during occultations of the spacecraft by Jupiter. The
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.
STRATOSPHERIC IMAGES OF JUPITER DERIVED FROM HYDROCARBON EMISSIONS IN VOYAGER 1 AND 2 IRIS SPECTRA
Spectroscopic data obtained by the Infrared Interferometer Spectrometer (IRIS) aboard Voyager 1 and 2 have been re-visited. Using the spectroscopic data and footprints of the IRIS aperture on the
