  • Abstract Submillimeter emission lines of carbon monoxide (CO) in Titan’s atmosphere provide excellent probes of atmospheric temperature due to the molecule’s long chemical lifetime and stable, well constrained volume mixing ratio. Here we present the analysis of 4 datasets obtained with the Atacama Large Millimeter/Submillimeter Array (ALMA) in 2012, 2013, 2014, and 2015 that contain strong CO rotational transitions. Utilizing ALMA’s high spatial resolution in the 2012, 2014, and 2015… CONTINUE READING
