In Situ Probes in the Atmospheres of the Ice Giants

Atmospheric probes of the ice giants, Uranus and Neptune, targeting a minimum depth at the 10-bar level, can measure key abundances, deep thermal structure, dynamics, and processes, with data returned by a Carrier Relay Spacecraft. An atmospheric probe is an essential element of a possible future NASA Ice Giant New Frontier or Flagship mission.
