Galileo Jovian Ring Data.
Two instruments on the Galileo Spacecraft acquired data on Jupiter's Ring System.
- The Solid State Imager (SSI) obtained high-resolution images at visual and infrared
- The Near-Infrared Mapping Spectrometer (NIMS) obtained multi-spectral images at
wavelengths from 0.7 to 5.2 microns.
Finding Galileo Data
Our Multi-Mission Search Tool allows
a user to search for and obtain subsets of data based on a wide range of constraints. At this time
the the tool supports Cassini CIRS, ISS and VIMS data, New Horizons Jupiter LORRI data,
Galileo SSI data, and Voyager ISS data. We plan to continue extending the scope of the tool to
address all of the data held at the Rings Node.
While the PDS Imaging Node is the primary repository
for all Galileo SSI and NIMS data, the Rings Node maintains subsets of the
data obtained by these two instruments, including all of the Jovian Ring observatons. Pages of
browse images of the Galileo ring observations are provided below.
