Key science questions (Planetary Atmospheres and Surfaces)

Wednesday 21 May 2008 by Vincent Coudé du Foresto
Here are the key science questions that have been identified in relation to the Planetary Atmospheres and Surfaces theme: What are the physical characteristics of the atmospheres (T, P, haze, clouds, winds) ? Spectra, polarization, spectral models What is the nature and composition of the (...)
