HIPWAC spectrum of Mars' atmosphere over a location on Martian latitude 40°N; acquired on 11 December 2009 during an observation campaign with the IRTF 3.0 metre telescope in Hawai'i.
This unprocessed spectrum displays features of ozone and carbon dioxide from Mars, as well as ozone in the Earth's atmosphere through which the observation was made. Processing techniques will model and remove the terrestrial contribution from the spectrum and determine the amount of ozone at this northern position on Mars.
