Global mineral distributions on Mars

  title={Global mineral distributions on Mars},
  author={Joshua L. Bandfield},
[ 1 ] Determining the mineralogy of Mars is an essential part of revealing the conditions of the surface and subsurface. A deconvolution method was used to remove atmospheric components and determine surface mineralogy from Thermal Emission Spectrometer data at 1 pixel per degree (ppd). Minerals are grouped into categories on the basis of compositional and spectral similarity, and global concentration maps are produced. All binned pixels are fit well with RMS errors of 0.005 in emissivity… CONTINUE READING
