Venus terminator profile
10/03/12

 

The temperature profile along the terminator for altitudes of 70–160 km above the surface of Venus. The values were derived from the volume density of carbon dioxide molecules measured during solar occultation experiments by Venus Express’ SOIR instrument. The graphic provides the average range of values calculated from 59 measurements taken along the terminator from 88ºN to 77ºS, during different orbits between 2006 and 2011. Credits: ESA/AOES
