NASA’s Juno search has provided better, deeper See Jupiter’s atmosphere. There are researchers Produced The first 3D view of Jupiter’s atmospheric layers depicts how its surging clouds and storms work in more detail than ever before. Most notably, it is clear how cyclones and anticyclones behave. They are much taller than expected, the Great Red Spot (an anticyclone) running 200 miles deep. They are either warm or cold at the top depending on their spin.
Juno helped fill in the data using a microwave radiometer that peeked below the surface of the cloud. For the Great Red Spot, the team supplemented the radiometer data with gravity signatures from two nearby passes. Radiometer data also showed Earth-like circulating cells in the northern and southern hemispheres, not to mention sea-like changes in microwave light.
Mysteries like the atmospheric mass of the Great Red Spot still remain. With that being said, 3D images are already creating more integrated images of how Jovian planets behave like Jupiter. It may not take much effort to solve more of Jupiter’s mysteries.
