Abstract: [1] This paper reports an analysis of the thermal properties of ejecta layers of single-and double-lobe impact craters on Mars. First observations of thermal properties were made at low resolution from the Phobos'88 mission and did not allow mapping of variations of thermal properties inside the ejecta layer. The THEMIS instrument on board the Mars Odyssey mission provides new high-resolution thermal mapping of the surface of Mars. From these data we observe a systematic temperature increase at night at the e…
