    Title: THE ULTRAVIOLET-ABSORPTION SPECTRUM OF CO - APPLICATIONS TO PLANETARY-ATMOSPHERES

    Source: JOURNAL OF GEOPHYSICAL RESEARCH-PLANETS, vol. 98, issue E3, (MAR 25, 1993) : pp. 5491-5497.

    Abstract: Laboratory gas-phase photoabsorption cross sections of the CO Cameron 0-0 band and the underlying pseudo-continuum have been measured at a temperature of 147K and pressures approximately 200 mbar, conditions similar to ambient in various planetary and satellite stratospheres in the solar system. A theoretical modeling program has also been used to calculate the band's spectrum. Agreement between the theoretical and the experimental spectra is very good. Models suggest that the observations of the CO Cameron band using the Hubble Space Telescope will be straightforward for Mars, but marginal for Titan
