This thread is for images/mosaics that combine data from more than one perijove pass or compare data (e.g. the appearance of specific features on Jupiter) from two or more perijoves. In other words, it is for images and related stuff not specific to a single perijove.


It is possible to use the JIRAM infrared images to attempt to guess what areas not imaged by JunoCam might look like at visual wavelengths.

Below is a montage showing versions of a mosaic of JunoCam images from perijoves 1, 3, 4 and 5. The effects of the varying global illumination have been removed. The mosaic shows Jupiter's north polar region in orthographic projection from directly above. Because the north pole is in darkness, an inverted, heavily processed and colorized JIRAM mosaic was used to fill the gap at the north pole. This represents an attempt to guess what this area might look like in visible light. Small scale details in the cloud morphology should be fairly accurate/realistic but the overall contrast, brightness and color are based partially on a visual comparison of the JunoCam and JIRAM data farther from the pole where useful data from both instruments is available. It is difficult to guess how accurate this is but it is definitely far better than leaving this area blank! The JIRAM data appears a bit different from the JunoCam data in the mosaic but this is mainly because the JIRAM images suggest that the overall color and brightness in the area very near the pole (including the central cyclone) really are different from areas farther from the pole. Another factor is that the JIRAM data is of somewhat higher resolution. Also unlike JunoCam, the difficult illumination conditions in the polar region do not affect the JIRAM images. And here is the montage:

The montage shows the following:

Upper left: An approximately true color/contrast mosaic of Jupiter's north polar region.
Upper right: A mosaic of Jupiter's north polar region with enhanced colors and contrast.
Lower left: The approximately true color/contrast version with a latitude/longitude grid. Latitudes are planetographic.
Lower right: A diagram showing the areas covered by the different source images/data. Unless otherwise noted the data is from JunoCam.

Hey, Bjorn,

May I show this at a Juno team meeting?

Do you have anything similar for the south pole (no relying on JIRAM results necessary).

Glenn

P.S. Feel free to email me directly, of course.

That's maybe the thread where I should provide a link to my not yet quite complete collection of maps and animations.

Here is a comparable montage featuring a mosaic covering the south polar region. This is from JunoCam data; it is a mosaic of two perijove 6 images, one perijove 7 image and one perijove 8 image. The color very near the pole might be somewhat inaccurate due to the very low illumination levels near the pole in the original images. The position of the circumpolar cyclones during PJ6 was used as a reference when creating the mosaic, however this is of minor importance since their movement is negligible. In contrast, the areas farther from the pole change a lot more and seams between the different perijoves were originally obvious in the mosaic. These seams have been removed for cosmetic reasons.

Like the north polar montage, this montage shows the following:

Upper left: An approximately true color/contrast mosaic of Jupiter's north polar region.
Upper right: A mosaic of Jupiter's north polar region with enhanced colors and contrast.
Lower left: The approximately true color/contrast version with a latitude/longitude grid. Latitudes are planetographic.

I got the second one, too. Thanks for your email. For some reason, my reply to your email is bouncing back.

A big map of Jupiter that combines the Juno polar data with a map made from Cassini data:

Of course this is strictly speaking fictional but should nevertheless be far more realistic than using featureless and smooth looking dummy data at the poles as I did before Juno.

Lovely processing, and an informative blog, many thanks for sharing. I hope you get your wish for additional data from future missions. Meanwhile I hope we will soon see some 3D projections of your map smile.gif

So far the Great Red Spot (GRS) has been well imaged during four of Juno's perijoves (there are additional perijoves where lower resolution images were obtained). Below are approximately true color/contrast map-projected mosaics from these perijoves showing how the GRS and nearby areas have changed. The mosaics cover planetographic latitudes 4.7 to 38 degrees south.

A lot more of the reddish stuff is flowing out of the GRS recently than in the PJ7 and PJ12 mosaics. Reddish 'flakes/blades' can be seen in the PJ17 and PJ18 mosaics. These events have also been extensively imaged with Earth-based telescopes. http://pvol2.ehu.eus is a great source of information for anyone interesting in Earth-based images of the planets.

The resolution of the source data is highly variable and this can be seen in some of the mosaics. The viewing geometry also varies a lot. Some of the images were obtained almost directly above the GRS (in particular some of the perijove 7 images) whereas other images were obtained at an oblique viewing angle (in particular the perijove 17 images).

These are approximately true color/contrast mosaics but there may be some inaccuracies in areas where the original images were obtained at a highly oblique angle. The contrast is also lower in these areas.

Below is the latest addition to the series of Great Red Spot (GRS) mosaics in the above post, a mosaic from PJ21 images:

Attached Image


This mosaic has the same resolution as the earlier mosaics and also covers planetographic latitudes 4.7 to 38 degrees south. It is obvious that the GRS is now smaller than it was at the time of the perijove 18 images (or at the very least the red area is smaller). Interestingly, the size of the Red Spot Hollow seems to be similar to the size it has in the PJ18 images.
