    Pioneer Venus image of the clouds of Venus. If you look at Venus through a telescope, you would see something like the picture image, taken by the Pioneer Venus Orbiter satellite, shows the thick clouds that completely obscure the surface of Venus below them. The time it takes Venus to orbit around the sun is days. This means that a day is longer than a year on Venus. There are three related Venus datasets. This dataset is an animation that starts with the clouds of Venus, then shows the surface (similar to the first dataset) and then shows the topography of Venus. Notable Features.

    This study compared detailed observational data of the lower cloud levels of Venus taken by Akatsuki’s IR2 camera with the high-resolution simulations from the AFES-Venus program. The left part of Figure 1 shows the lower cloud levels of Venus captured by the IR2 camera. Note the almost symmetrical giant streaks across the northern and.   This concluding paper of a special issue of Space Science Reviews, devoted to the exploration of Venus and the Pioneer Venus Program, contains brief engineering descriptions of the experiments to be integrated into the Orbiter and Multiprobe scientific by:

    using data obtained from the Magellan, Pioneer Venus, and other Venus missions, as well as Earth-based observations that contribute to understanding the physical and evolutionary properties of Venus. The program intends to enhance the scientific return from these missions by broadening the participa-tion in the analysis of Venus data. The Pioneer Venus Orbiter was the first of a two-spacecraft orbiter-probe combination designed to conduct a comprehensive investigation of the atmosphere of Venus. (Courtesy NASA/GSFC) The spacecraft was a solar-powered cylinder about cm in diameter with its spin axis spin-stabilized perpendicular to the ecliptic plane.

Microphysical Modelling of Venus Clouds, including radiative transfer Venera-D Modeling Workshop 20 September Riga, Latvia Kevin McGouldrick University of Colorado Boulder / Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics • Mass of photochemical cloud is severely deficient. The results of the particle size spectrometer experiment on the Pioneer Venus sounder probe are presented.

The vertical cloud structure is found to consist of three primary cloud regions of approximately 20 km total thickness suspended within an ubiquitous aerosol haze which extends more than 10 km above and below by: The paper published in in the Venus book summarized the discoveries and findings of the US Pioneer Venus and a series of Soviet Venera spacecraft (Esposito et al.

in Venus, p. ). The developed photochemical model is extended down to 47 km to use the data of the kinetic model for the lower atmosphere (Krasnopolsky, ) as the boundary conditions and for comparison of the results.

The altitude step is reduced from 2 km in all previous models to km, with a significant improvement of the numerical by: Chapter13 by von Zahn et al.

Despite the observed smaller NO abundance, the photochemical impact of NO is significant in the atmo-sphere above the clouds.

Pioneer Venus observations have shown that the clouds of Venus are created by the photochemical processes that oxidize upwelling SO2 [Winick and Stewart, ; Yung and DeMore, ]. Thus any significant changes in SO2 may have an effect on the chemistry and dynamics of the clouds.

The results presented represent a synthesis of data from those Pioneer Venus experiments directed toward studying cloud problems.

These orbiter and multiprobe experiments show the cloud system to consist of three altitude regions populated by cloud particles and smaller haze particles which extend above and below as well as coexist with the cloud particles. The model used leans heavily on heritage from the work of McGouldrick and Toon (, a, b).It is based on the Community Aerosol and Radiation Model for Atmospheres (CARMA), which was first described in a NASA Technical report, and then by Toon et al.

The clouds of Venus are considered to consist of a H 2 SO 4 –H 2 O solution (Esposito et al. ) and their distribution is strongly related to the H 2 SO 4 cycle governed by winds and sedimentation of droplets. In particular, the H 2 SO 4 cycle at the equatorial region is important since it controls the global distribution of clouds via meridional by: Books at Amazon.

Venus was one of the five planets—along with Mercury, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn—known in ancient times, and its motions were observed and studied for centuries prior to the invention of advanced astronomical instruments.

Its appearances were recorded by the Babylonians, who equated it with the goddess Ishtar, about bce, and it also is mentioned prominently in the astronomical records.

It was assumed in Paper I that sulfuric acid is formed as monohydrate H 2 SO 4 *H 2 O that corresponds to concentration of 85%.
