Abstract

The Atmospheric Chemistry Suite (ACS) [1], one of the four science experiments on board ESA-Roscosmos ExoMars 2016 Trace Gas Orbiter (TGO) mission has started science operations in March 2018. ACS consists of 3 infrared spectrometers targeting the unambiguous detection of trace gases of potential geophysical or biological interest. The dataset reported here concerns the methane detection attempts conducted during the first complete Martian year (almost two Earth years) of observations using ultra-sensitive occultation observing mode in orbit around Mars.
