Cess, R.D., B.E. Carlson, J. Caldwell, I.G. Nolt, F.C. Gillett, and A.T. Tokunaga, 1981: Latitudinal variations in Jovian stratospheric temperature. Icarus, 46, 249-255, doi:10.1016/0019-1035(81)90212-8.

Ground-based observations of Jupiter show that the planet's stratospheric and tropospheric thermal emission are anticorrelated. The observations can possibly be explained by latitudinal variations in cloud altitude. These variations cause differential stratospheric heating by sunlight which is reflected off the clouds and then absorbed within the stratosphere by visible and near-infrared bands of methane.
