Hord, C.W., R.A. West, K.E. Simmons, D.L. Coffeen, M. Sato, A.L. Lane, and J.T. Bergstralh, 1979: Photometric observations of Jupiter at 2400 Å. Science, 206, 956-959, doi:10.1126/science.206.4421.956.

The photopolarimeter instrument on Voyager 2 was used to obtain a map of Jupiter at an effective wavelength of 2400 Å. Analysis of a typical north-south swath used to make this map shows strong absorption at high latitudes by a molecular or particulate constituent in the Jovian atmosphere. At 65° north latitude, the absorbing constituent extends to altitudes above the 50-millibar pressure level.
