Super-adiabatic Temperature Gradient at Jupiter’s Equatorial Zone and Implications For Water Abundance

(A) Three idealized Jovian thermal fashions, dry adiabatic (black), sub-adiabatic (orange) and super-adiabatic (blue). The non-adiabatic temperature gradient is ± 0.15 �/km. The gray dashed strains present the contribution features of 10, 5.2, 2.6, and 1.25 GHz channels (from prime to backside). (B) Nadir brightness temperature anomalies at six Juno MWR channels. From prime to […]
