Chemical Weathering Trends from Tir Spectral Models: Implications for Deriving Weathering Trends from Martian Spectral Data


Introduction: Chemical weathering and petrologic trends of the martian surface have been estimated from thermal infrared (TIR) spectral models from the Thermal Emission Spectrometer (TES) and Mini-TES on the Spirit and Opportunity rovers [1,2]. Interpretations of chemical data from APXS on the MER rovers and TIR data from TES and the Thermal Emission… (More)
