Gravity, mass momentum, and the Super Rotation of Venus's Atmosphere
Authored by Jason Jarvis - Gravity Mass Momentum Theory Series of Papers and Discussions
Super Rotation on Venus is largely due to the Sun's gravity
Continuing with the gravity and mass momentum discussion let's now analyze the super rotation of Venus's upper atmosphere. The European Space Agency's Venus express mission has determined that over the course of a few years the equatorial upper atmosphere of Venus has increased in velocity by up to 100 km per hour.
What is driving the super rotation and fast upper jet stream of Venus?
