Study on physics of Venus' cloud

Study period:2000 - 2000

Research overview:
We have studied the role of wind in the development of Venus' cloud using a numerical model. In the past studies on Venus' cloud, transportation effect of wind has not been positively dealt with. This study has revealed, for the first time, that distribution of sulfuric acid, a raw material of cloud, is governed by wind of planetary scale, and three mode distribution of the size spectrum of cloud particles is induced by the varying wind.
