Fig. 12


Dust opacities κ [cm2 g-1] for the cloud structure at φ = 0°, 180°, θ = 0° as a function of pressure. Top row: total extinction κext. Second row: absorption κabs. Third row: scattering κsca. Bottom row: scattering to absorption ratio κsca/κabs. Bluer wavelengths are absorbed/scattered more efficiently than redder wavelengths in the upper atmosphere. The absorption dominates the total extinction in the upper regions and scattering in the deeper atmosphere. The spikes in scattering ratio at 10-2 and 10-1 bar correspond to Fe rich grain composition.
