Data for: Mapping of Jupiter's tropospheric NH3 abundance using ground-based IRTF/TEXES observations at 5 um

Published: 14 Jun 2018 | Version 1 | DOI: 10.17632/58ytwtk9c8.1

Description of this data

Contains three spectral cubes of Jupiter at 5 microns obtained on 16 January 2016 (UT) using Texas Echelon X-Echelle Spectrograph (TEXES) mounted on the InfraRed Telescope Facility (IRTF) at Mauna Kea, Hawaii.

The spectral cubes have a size of ~60x95 pixels, depending of the cube. On each spectral cube, nearly all the disk of Jupiter is visible, lacking only a few pixels near the poles.
The three spectral cubes together cover the 90--360 system III degree west longitudinal range.

The spectral range is comprised between ~1930 and ~1945 cm-1 (~5 microns), divided in ~200 samples with a spectral resolution of ~0.15 cm-1.
This spectral range contains essentially a NH3 line located at ~1939 cm-1, and probes the atmosphere of Jupiter in the 1--4 bar region.

More informations can be found in the README file (including a file format description and examples of utilization), and in the related article.
