Mars Global Surveyor monitors temperatures in the Martian atmosphere through infrared sounding by the Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) as well as Radio Science (RS) occultation experiments. We report results from extensive comparisons of TES nadir and RS temperature profiles, focusing on data obtained under conditions that allow nearly simultaneous measurements at the same location and local time. We analyzed data from 13 intervals with durations of 7-19 sols that sample latitudes of 62°-85°N during mi…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
