Outer planets

  • Outer Planets

    • Jupiter, clouds around red spot, storm evolution, temporal coverage. Decadal also mentioned redesign of JEO. Spectro-identifiable storm clouds and evolution, meteorology, water clouds too? Ammonia Hydrosulfide?

    • Uranus/Neptune (clouds, long-term monitoring, .01” needed, can do in visible to near IR, AOTF inst, time base is the big driver here, full rotation, dynamics-composition-time, spectroscopic identification of clouds, methane, acetylene, aerosol identification, FabryPerot+AOTF)

    • Europa

  • Mars

    • characterize distribution of water, dust, the cycles. Done from orbiters but lacking some diurnal coverage. Composition (methane). Need to continue the climatology between missions (long wavelength CO2, temperature, dust opacity, water)

  • Venus

    • Sun-Venus connection

    • Climate


Outer planets

Can do Mars trace gas science from a balloon, minimizing telluric interference but on a cheaper and quicker timescale.

What Decadal mission science can be done from a balloon platform? New Frontier science? Much of it is sample return, but Venus science could be done. Also Uranus science (atmos, magneto). Non-decadal science that strongly complements decadal mission science. Will make for a most robust R&A program across many disciplines.

Decadal missions that can be addressed by balloons:
