Venus Modeled Spectrum Compared with SCIAMACHY Observations

Vasquez, Mayte and Schreier, Franz and Gimeno-Garcia, Sebastian and Gottwald, Manfred and Slijkhuis, Sander and Lichtenberg, Günter (2010) Venus Modeled Spectrum Compared with SCIAMACHY Observations. ESA Living Planet Symposium, 28. Jun. - 02. Jul., Bergen (Norwegen).

Full text not available from this repository.


SCIAMACHY onboard ENVISAT successfully captured visible and near-infrared spectra of sunlight scattered and reflected from Venus atmosphere. Observations took place in March, when SCIAMACHY captured light mainly from the limb of Venus, and in June 2009, when a larger fraction of the planetary disk was illuminated representing a nadir viewing. Venus spectra were simulated using a line-by-line radiative transfer model, which also takes into account single scattering from atmospheric particles and molecules. Comparing SCIAMACHY's Venus observations with modeled spectra serves as a test for radiative transfer modeling of planetary atmospheres, an essential prerequisite for the search of living planets.
