Sulfur chemistry in the middle atmosphere of Venus

Zhang, Xi; Liang, Mao Chang; Mills, Franklin; Belyaev, Denis A.; Yung, Yuk L.

Description

Venus Express measurements of the vertical profiles of SO and SO 2 in the middle atmosphere of Venus provide an opportunity to revisit the sulfur chemistry above the middle cloud tops (~58km). A one dimensional photochemistry-diffusion model is used to simulate the behavior of the whole chemical system including oxygen-, hydrogen-, chlorine-, sulfur-, and nitrogen-bearing species. A sulfur source is required to explain the SO 2 inversion layer above 80km. The evaporation of the aerosols...[Show more]
