Mishchenko, M.I., 1990: Physical properties of the upper tropospheric aerosols in the Equatorial Region of Jupiter. Icarus, 84, 296-304, doi:10.1016/0019-1035(90)90039-C.

Physical properties of the upper tropospheric aerosols in the Equatorial Region of Jupiter are estimated by means of interpretation of ground-based spectropolarimetric and spectrophotometric observations of the center of the Jovian disk. It was assumed that the upper cloud layer of the Jovian atmosphere is homogeneous and optically thick (semi-infinite), and contains gas and homogeneous spherical particles. Two different particle size distributions were used, namely a gamma distribution and modified gamma distribution. The best agreement between the observational data and computations for both size distributions was found for an effective radius of aerosols reff = 0.39 ± 0.08 µm and a real part of the refractive index nr 1.39 ± 0.01. The results were obtained by means of multiple scattering calculations with full account of polarization.
