Dayglow and night glow of the Venusian upper atmosphere. Modelling and observations

Abstract : For the first time, a comprehensive model is proposed to compute dayglow and nightglow emissions of the Venusian upper atmosphere. It relies on previous works with noticeable improvements, both on the transport and on the chemical aspects. In the near future, a radiative transfer model will be used to compute optically thick lines in the dayglow, and a fluid model will be added to compute ionosphere densities and temperatures. We will present the first observational results from the Pic du Midi telescope in June 2007, in order to compare with our modelling.
