Title: Hydrocarbon emission in the polar regions of Jupiter

Abstract: We plan to observe hydrocarbon emission from the polar regions of Jupiter at high spectral resolution. Measurements of both poles will be made using the Phoenix spectrograph to determine the abundances, effective temperatures and morphology of hydrocarbon species with respect to auroral hot spots. The proposal takes advantage of the rotation of Jupiter to provide full longitudinal coverage of each pole.
