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.
