Latitudinal variations of HCN, HC3N, and C2N2 in Titan’s stratosphere derived from Cassini CIRS data

Abstract

Midand far-infrared spectra from the Composite InfraRed Spectrometer (CIRS) have been used to determine volume mixing ratios of nitriles in Titan’s atmosphere. HCN, HC3N, C2H2, and temperature were derived from 2.5 cm −1 spectral resolution mid-IR mapping sequences taken during three flybys, which provide almost complete global coverage of Titan for… (More)
