Jupiter's NTB Plume and Turbulent wake interaction

2020-09-18

Jupiter_storm_alert According to the last Jupiter images by Clyde Foster on 16 September, plume P3 has speed up and is approaching two white spots (s1 and s2) located at a latitude further north. Interactions between plume P3 and these white spots may be imminent according to the drift of the futures.

URGENT OBSERVATIONS of this region are needed to study this interaction. Previous large-scale disturbances in the NTB resulted in the plumes being switched off by their complex turbulent interaction with the tails of other plumes.
