The Composite Infrared Spectrometer (CIRS) consists of two interferometers, one polarizing, the other a conventional Michaelson interferometer, which together provide broad spectral coverage from 10 cm-1 to 1400 cm-1 (1 mm to 7 μ m), at a resolution as high as 0.5 cm-1. CIRS functions both as a thermometer and assayer of the target body, retrieving both thermal structure and composition. The Cassini spacecraft's 140-RJ flyby past Jupiter has enabled CIRS to observe Jupiter, its satellites, and its ring for six months with a spatial resolution up to 2.5o of jovian latitude at the subspacecraft point. This talk will include early results on Jupiter's atmospheric composition obtained from the relatively unexplored spectral region >50 μm, Jupiter's planetary-scale temperature field, and the compositional anomalies and temperatures associated with its auroral hot spots.
