Syrtis Major is an old, low relief volcanic plateau near the equatorial regions of Mars. It is a persistent low-albedo feature on the planet and is thought to contain a high abundance of exposed bedrock and/or locally derived surface material and debris. Spatially resolved variations in surface spectral properties, and therefore composition, are investigated with data from the Imaging Spectrometer for Mars (ISM) instrument. ISM obtained 128 wavelength channel spectra from 0.76 to 3.16 μm for… CONTINUE READING
