Abstract

Abstract Recent high-resolution 2.10- to 2.13-μm equatorial spectra of Jupiter show several prominent absorption lines in addition to a narrow H 2 1-0 S(1) absorption. Comparison with laboratory spectra of the H 2 dimer reveals excellent wavelength coincidences with five of the jovian absorptions. We conclude that the jovian lines are due to the H 2 dimer. No other jovian lines are clearly detected in this spectral interval.
