Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The Martian temperature fields simulated with general circulation models are used to calculate the CO spectra in the submillimeter wavelength (691GHz). In the spectra within the offset frequency of ±500MHz, we can see the information of temperature from the planetary surface to ~80km height atmosphere. The difference of the spectra obtained from the temperature fields in different seasons and models are discussed, for the upcoming submillimeter observations of the Martian atmosphere.
