 Title: HIGH RESOLUTION TECHNIQUES FOR METHANE IN THE JOVIAN ATMOSPHERE. Creators: Fox, K.; Margolis, J. S. Issue Date: 1969 Publisher: Ohio State University Abstract: High resolution laboratory $measurements^{1}$ of line positions and relative intensities of fine structure components in the methane band at 9050 $cm^{-1}$, as well as new theoretical results, have been used to deduce properties of the Jovian atmosphere. Saturation was found to be important for a large range of Lorentz half-widths $\gamma$. Results are presented for $0.03\leq \gamma \leq 0.30 cm^{-1}$ and for no saturation.
