Jupiter absorbtion spectrum.

  1. Nov 9, 2011 #1
    I've recently taken a spectral image (visible wavelengths) of Jupiter. After calibrating my spectral analysis program I've been able to get wavelength per pixel and produce a graph of intensity vs wavelength.
    I have an absorption spectra of Jupiter, but I am unaware on how to correlate which absorption lines go to which element, molecule, etc. Is there a general catalog of wavelengths(angstroms or nm) i.e. where I can just view say, the elements or molecules with spectral lines from 460nm to 500nm and then correlate with the known composition of Jupiter;s atmosphere?
