Paper Abstract

In the last dozen years spaceborne Fourier Transform Spectrometers have obtained infrared emission spectra of Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Titan as well as of the Galilean and other Saturnian satellites and Saturn's rings. Intercomparisons of the properties of planetary atmospheres and of the characteristics of solid surfaces are now feasible. The principles of remotely sensing the environment on a planetary body are discussed. Special consideration is given to the most recent results obtained by the Voyager infrared investigation on the Saturn system.
