The European Space Agency
Mars Express: SPICAM

April 30, 2021. New data have been added to the IR EDR data set, extending coverage through December 24, 2020.

The SPICAM UV and IR Atmospheric Spectrometer measures the composition of the Martian atmosphere over smaller volumes than the PFS instrument. It measures ozone using a technique similar to that used on the Mariner 9 spacecraft which first discovered ozone on Mars. SPICAM also uses the technique of stellar occultation to measure the vertical profiles of carbon dioxide, temperature, ozone, aerosols and clouds.  The SPICAM Principal Investigator is now Dr. Franck Montmessin, Laboratoire Atmosphères, Milieux, Observations Spatiales, replacing Dr. Jean-Loup Bertaux.

The primary source for SPICAM data is the ESA Planetary Science Archive.

Through a cooperative agreement between ESA and NASA, the PDS Geosciences Node will host a copy of the SPICAM data archive on this web site when it becomes available.

Sept. 4, 2014. New data have been added to the IR and UV EDR data sets, extending the coverage through January 5, 2014.

July 25, 2014. New SPICAM UV reduced data sets have been posted. These are partially reduced data that have been corrected for dark current and electronic noise. They have also been edited to remove erroneous data and data with cosmic ray damage and saturation.

January 27, 2014. New data have been posted for the IR and UV EDR data sets, extending coverage through July 22, 2013.

May 13, 2013. New data have been posted for the IR and UV EDR data sets, extending coverage through December 31, 2012.

December 13, 2012. The complete SPICAM IR EDR and UV EDR data sets have been revised. The previous versions will remain available on request until June 20, 2013.

September 27, 2011. The complete SPICAM UV EDR data set from Extended Mission 2 is now online.

January 4, 2011. New SPICAM data for Extended Mission 3 are now available for the IR and UV EDR data sets. Data coverage is now from the start of the mission through 27 June 2010. The UV data for Extended Mission 2 is still being ingested by the ESA PSA team.
