Exploring Jupiter’s hazes with JIRAM

Numerous hazes of uncertain origin and composition have been identified in images of Jupiter from JunoCam. We are developing a simplified radiative transfer model for use with the PlanetCARMA model of aerosol microphysics and radiative transfer that will be utilized to constrain the properties of these aerosols by both microphysical and observable means. In this report of preliminary progress, we will begin to constrain the range of possible contributors by generating synthetic spectra of Jupiter as viewed by the Jovian Infrared Auroral Mapper (JIRAM) for a variety of scattering properties. Water ice and hydrocarbon species will be considered, as well as possible fractal scattering properties, all of which will be compared to a control model of the Jovian atmosphere that is devoid of stratospheric aerosols. This work is supported by NFDAP Grant Number 80NSSC22K1039.
