Solar occultations performed with a spectrometer on board the
Soviet spacecraft Phobos 2 (Blamont et al. 1991) provided data on
the vertical structure of the Martian aerosols in the equatorial
region (0o-20 N latitude) near the northern spring equinox
(Ls = 0-20). All measurements were made close to the evening
terminator. Five clouds were detected above 45 km altitude and
