I have recently entered the field of planetary science as a limited-scope project which is part of my masters' degree in chemistry.
My project is going to revolve around Titan and its complex organic chemistry (atmospheric and surface-based), and naturally, most papers I've read describe heavy use of spectroscopic methods for such observations.
Now, I have a basic understanding of spectroscopy in general, but I am looking for something to read that could possibly help me bridge the gap between what I know about spectroscopy in general and the applications of spectroscopy in the field of planetary science.
Perhaps there is a recommended textbook or a chapter in a book that makes this connection? A Youtube video? An introductory text that explains the basics?
The other part of the project is to try to understand what type of features of Titan could be viewed using the James Webb Space Telescope (JWST). A rather comprehensive description of the JWST instrumentation is available online (e.g. here and here), but I feel that I need to become familiar with some basic concepts and terminology to fully understand it.
Now, obviously it would be best to take courses and actually study it seriously because there is A LOT to learn, but right now I'm trying to get an overview of what could JWST see best on Titan. I studied Titan for the past couple of weeks, and now I would like to get better acquainted with the observation methods.
