The deep atmosphere of Venus

PHILOS T ROY SOC A 349 (1994) 273-283

SB CALCUTT, FW TAYLOR

Venus as a planet resembles the Earth, but has a much hotter and denser atmosphere due to an extreme case of the greenhouse effect, caused by compositional differences and tile thick cloud cover. Studies of the lower atmosphere are inhibited by the cloud opacity, which makes remote measurements at most frequencies short. of the radio range quite difficult. Progress in understanding of the com position and thermal structure below the clouds has been made by the Pioneer and Venera entry probes of the 1970s, and more recently with results from the Galileo fly-by in 1990. The latter exploited the newly discovered near-infrared 'windows' to achieve measurements of carbon monoxide and water vapour abundances in the deep atmosphere, and provided the first detailed view of the global cloud structure. The morphology and spatial variations seen in the main mass of clouds are remarkable, and suggest a powerful and diverse meteorology dominated by convection. Carbon monoxide is significantly more abundant at high northern latitudes than at low latitudes in either hemisphere.


Investigation of dielectric spaced resonant mesh filter designs for PMIRR

Infrared Physics 34 (1993) 549-563

PGJ Irwin, PAR Ade, SB Calcutt, FW Taylor, JS Seeley, R Hunneman, L Walton

The fabrication of the filters for the two longest wave channels of the Pressure Modulator Infra-red Radiometer (PMIRR), launched in September 1992 on Mars Observer, was not possible using conventional multilayer dielectric techniques. Thus the extension of far-infrared/microwave mesh filter designs was investigated using a new dielectric spacing material. Test filters were designed and fabricated and, using their measured transmission spectra, a new model of the behaviour of resonant meshes in both air and dielectrics was developed. The low transmission of these filters in the end made them unsuitable for PMIRR but the model provides a useful design tool for future dielectric spaced filters providing a new, less absorbing dielectric can be found. © 1993.

Diurnal and semi‐diurnal temperature variability of the middle atmosphere, as observed by ISAMS

Geophysical Research Letters 20 (1993) 1251-1254

A Dudhia, SE Smith, AR Wood, FW Taylor

Some preliminary results are presented showing that the ISAMS instrument on board the UARS satellite has detected sun‐synchronous variations in atmospheric temperature between 15–80 km altitude. These are interpreted as the westward‐migrating diurnal and semi‐diurnal tides. Zonal mean maps of the amplitudes of these components are shown, determined from 40 days' observations during the northern hemisphere winter of 1991/92. The results show maximum amplitudes ∼5 K, with the diurnal tide strongest over the equator while the semi‐diurnal tide is strongest at mid‐latitudes. Comparisons are made with previous observations from the LIMS instrument and the lidar at Biscarrosse, France. While the ISAMS and LIMS results are consistent, several significant differences from the lidar results are noted. The conclusion is that information on the global diurnal and semi‐diurnal temperature tides in the middle atmosphere may be obtained from a relatively simple treatment of ISAMS data.
