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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
