Abstract

We are developing techniques for measuring basic properties of the Martian atmosphere using ground-based telescopes. By observing the reflected light spectrum at near-IR wavelengths we can obtain information on the composition and structure of the atmosphere. We use imaging spectroscopy to obtain spectra across the planet’s disk and interpret the data with the help of high-resolution radiative transfer models.
