Akatsuki Participating Scientist Program (ROSES 2019)
The objectives of the Akatsuki Participating Scientist Program (PSP) are to aid in data archiving and enhance and supplement Venus science being performed by the Akatsuki Venus Climate Orbiter. This call for proposals is for approximately four Participating Scientists (PSs) from U.S. institutions, and may include the selection of one Akatsuki Participating Scientist in residence (PSiR) at JAXA.
The Akatsuki PSP program seeks to support and enhance the Akatsuki mission science objectives, such as a better understanding of Venus’ atmospheric circulation using global mapping with Akatsuki's five cameras (from ultraviolet to infrared wavelengths) and measurements of the atmospheric vertical structure with radio occultation techniques. The regular and continuous observations by Akatsuki should provide a complete dataset of the Venusian atmospheric dynamics that complements the observations by Venus Express and prior missions to Venus.
