Description
High-resolution (up to 0.02 kayser) airborne spectral observations of Jupiter in the range from 105 to 140 kaysers are presented. The procedures used to remove the effects of telluric opacity and for the brightness-temperature calibration are described. The resulting spectrum is compared with recent calculations for different Jovian models. Some constraints on the NH3 column density above the temperature-inversion level are derived.
