Paper Abstract

We introduce an innovative concept for inferring altitude profiles of horizontal wind in planetary atmospheres by measuring the Doppler shift of multiple emission lines versus altitude. Instruments using this approach will be especially well suited for interplanetary missions because they will be compact, rugged, and lightweight while minimizing power consumption and maximizing sensitivity, all without moving parts.
