Hi all,

This is my first post. I am a fourth year undergrad doing a project on astrobiology. in order to do calculations of meteorite impact on the surfaces of europa, enceladus, and mars, i need their atmospheric density profile models. Any idea where i could find those?

thanks in advance.

"mars atmospheric profile" gives a lot of relevant google hits, including several papers about its atmosphere.
Europa has a surface pressure of ~100nPa (reference), on Enceladus it is very variable (see this and the following reference) - I would expect that you can neglect it for meteorites of significant size.
