Scattered light albedo spectra Aλ(α) (Eq. (31)) as a function of wavelength at several viewing angles α, where α = 0° defines the sub-stellar point. Differences in the 3D cloud structure on the east and west hemispheres from the sub-stellar points produce small variations in Aλ across the 360° phase space at optical wavelengths. Na and K absorption are responsible for the drops in Aλ in the optical, while H2O features are the main absorber at near-IR to IR wavelengths.
