Latitude of derived MGS Radio Science temperature profiles versus seasonal date for the six Mars years spanned by these measurements. The file from which these latitude and seasonal dates are provided can be accessed here.
MGS Radio Science Data
This derived T-P dataset contains the entire collection of radio occultation neutral atmosphere temperature-pressure T( p ) profiles derived from Mars Global Surveyor (MGS) Radio Science data during the MGS mission. The aareadme.txt file provides an introduction to the reduced data set while raw data are available online or by request.
Derived Data - Occultation T-P
The data volume is available here.
The data are located at mors_1101. This data set is comprised of data products, each derived from an individual ingress or egress occultation. Each file lists observing parameters and a table including pressure, temperature, density and associated standard deviations as a function of radius (distance from the center of mass of the planet).
The TPS directory contains 34 subdirectories with names of the form yyyy_ddd giving the year (yyyy) and day-of-year (ddd) of the first T( p ) file within. The subdirectory coverage does not overlap and there are often days or weeks between the last file in one directory and the first file in the next.
The following index (xlsx, txt) can be used to select desired files. A more complete index is available.
The Software Interface Specification (SIS) document provides a more detailed description of the data set while catalogue files in mors_1101 define the mission, spacecraft and instrument.
