Abstract

Venus' global-scale H2SO4 cloud and haze layers form via the combination of SO3 and H2O, and SO3 forms via oxidation of SO2. Sulfur-bearing and sulfur-oxidized species, such as SO2 , SO, S, OCS, H2 O4 , are key traces of Venus' H2SO4 cloud/haze formation process. These species are also important tracers of the ongoing chemical evolution of Venus' atmosphere, atmospheric dynamics, and the level/history of active volcanism occurring on the planet. However, the specific pathways (which may be chemical, microphysical and/or dynamical) that balance the budget of sulfur (and oxidized sulfur) in Venus' atmosphere are ill-defined, as are the mechanisms that sustain the density of the clouds. As result, Venus' climate evolution is ill-defined, and understanding Venus' sulfur-budget is highlighted as an important Venus exploration target.
