Nightside emission measurements by the Visible and Infrared Thermal Imaging Spectrometer (VIRTIS) on the Venus Express (VEX) spacecraft were used to estimate the potential for the extraction of Venus surface information. A suite of orbits over the northern hemisphere was selected for footprints that cover surface elevations from -2000 m to 6000 m. First, a preliminary radiative transfer calculation technique was applied to simulate Venus nightside radiation. The variability of the emission window radiances with respect to cloud opacity and surface elevation was modelled and is discussed in direct comparison to the measurements. An initial extraction of topographic information was performed and compared with Magellan radar data.
