Pressure-Altitude Measurements on Mars

NSSDCA ID: PSPA-00103

Availability: At NSSDC, Ready for Offline Distribution (or Staging if Digital)

Time span: 1972-01-23 to 1972-03-01

Description

This data set microfiched by NSSDC from a reprint of an article "Mariner 9 Ultraviolet Spectrometer Experiment: Pressure-Altitude Measurements on Mars" by C.W. Hord et al, which was published in Icarus, 21, 292-302 (1974). UVS measurements of the reflectance at 3050 A are modeled to give pressure-altitudes for Mars assuming a quiescent atmosphere. The overall scaling factor is found by intercomparison with Mariner 9 occultation pressures. Data appear in both table and contour plot forms.
