Reference Surface Reflectivity for Mars at 1064 nm and Data for Recalibration of MOLA Passive Radiometry

Published: 1 Nov 2016 | Version 2 | DOI: 10.17632/smb69k52st.2

Description of this data

The dataset consists of a map of surface reflectivity at 1064 nm for Mars (finalreferencemap) mapped in eastward longitude-latitude coordinates and the necessary data to recalibrate MOLA passive radiometry (uncalib_reflect and uncalib_reflect_bias).

uncalib_reflect is the reflectivity inferred from Minnaert-corrected passive radiometry data for 10 albedo regions on Mars. uncalib_reflect_bias is the estimated reflectivity bias relative to Hubble Space Telescope analysis of uncalib_reflect.

This data is stored in a version 3 netCDF file.
