Title: The Decline of Jupiter's 13-cm Synchrotron Radio Emission During the Year Following the SL-9 Impacts
Authors: Klein, Michael J.
Issue Date: Oct-1995
Citation: Hawaii
Abstract: Measurements of Jupiter's microwave radio emission from 1990 through August 1995 are reported and analyzed to study the rate of decay in the synchrotron radiation following the dramatic increase observed in July 1994 during the week of impacts by fragments of Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9. The observations were made at 2295 MHz as part of the NASA-JPL Jupiter Patrol, a long-term radio astronomy monitoring program begun in 1971. Data from 34-meter and 70-meter antennas at the NASA's Deep Space Communication Complex at Goldstone, CA are used to estimate slope and curvature of plausible "baselines" for Jupiter's non-thermal flux density over the five-year interval. These "baseline" estimates are then used to derive decay times for the outburst emission related to the SL-9 impacts.
