Nature Geoscience. doi:10.1038/ngeo3019

Authors: Sophie Marjanac, Lindene Patton & James Thornton

Venus: Jet-setting atmosphere

Mon, 08/28/2017 - 00:00

Nature Geoscience. doi:10.1038/ngeo3022

Author: Alain Hauchecorne

A fast equatorial jet in the Venusian cloud layer has been revealed by the Akatsuki orbiter by tracking cloud movement in near-infrared images. The findings suggest that the Venusian atmosphere is more variable than previously thought.
